SHS Students Participate in Industry Tours

MARCH 18, 2020 - It’s more than a field trip! More than 500 Shakopee High School sophomores participated in an industry tour as part of their experience in the Academies of Shakopee. Students visited different workplaces to learn more about companies and their industry, observe employees in their normal work routines and ask questions.


For employers, this is their opportunity to nurture student interest in jobs and careers, and help students and staff understand the education and skills needed for such careers.
