CART had its annual showcase last Thursday. All CART students presented projects that they had been working on for months. CART organized the event to showcase the student’s work for the community, family, and friends. The showcase highlighted the hands-on environment of CART as students interacted with people checking out their projects. Some students had games and challenges as part of their projects for the community to engage with.

Laurynn Ball, a Clovis High senior and part of the bio-medicine class, created a project for the showcase at the center where classes are held.

“The showcase in particular is really cool,” Ball said, “because we get to make a whole project and then present it to random people in the community. We have to learn how to be confident and calm in these situations and be able to be able to present what we learn. That is a really valuable skill that I don’t think you could get that experience at a regular high school.”

Laurynn loves her experiences at CART and is frequently encouraging others to apply.

“I love CART,” Ball said, “because it challenges me to put myself out there and I get to have real-life experiences.”

“Even if you are hesitant to join CART, I would say go for it,” Ball added. “Apply for CART If you don’t get in, don’t give up and put yourself on a waitlist. I didn’t get in the first time I applied but I put myself on a waitlist and got in a few month after. It has been one of the best decisions in my life.” Read more...
