Do you remember what your dream career was when you were 12? Was it a lawyer, a doctor, a musician or an architect? Think back to the day when you finally decided where life would take you. Was there a defining moment, a mentor who guided you to making your decision?
Being twelve years old can be difficult; we’ve all been there. You are right in the middle of finding out who you are and where you want to go with your life.
Here at DASI Solutions, we have the opportunity on May 5 to host a Career Day to 8th graders at our Downtown Pontiac headquarters. The students will get a chance to explore our in-house STEM Studio, as well as learn about the business and CAD training aspects of our company. DASI will give them brief overviews of the following:
- SOLIDWORKS Product Suite
- Core SOLIDWORKS certifications available including CSWA & CSWP
- DASI’s Industrial Design Technician Apprenticeship Program
- Additive Manufacturing
In addition to the studio tour and presentation, students will also have the opportunity to work with our very own Certified SOLIDWORKS Expert, Darin Grosser, during a special hands-on exercise. Students will work closely with our “SOLIDWORKS Guy” and get a first-hand look at the SOLIDWORKS CAD software. They will get a chance to work one-on-one with him to design and 3D print parts in our showroom.
We try to take advantage of any opportunity we get, here at DASI, to encourage and empower the future workforce to follow career paths in manufacturing and engineering. Any exposure to these industries that these kids get is beneficial to their success; and to the success of this region. There’s only a little over 2 weeks until we get to see the kids’ shining faces. We can’t wait!
