Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) -- High schoolers are getting a hands-on feel for potential future careers.

More than 25-hundred students dug their hands into 75 different occupations, at the Health, Tech, and Trades Career Expo. The Fargodome event drew mainly ninth graders, giving them insight into possible career tracks in our region.

The interactive exhibits ranged from construction and manufacturing to cosmetology and culinary arts.

Park Christian freshman, Julia Boe, says, "I think I want to do human services with disability kids."

Cody Voit, Mahnomen freshman, says, "I'm thinking I might do construction. That's pretty fun."

Students came from more than 25 high schools all over North Dakota and Minnesota.
