Hundreds of students from north-central Montana got a break from the books and took an active approach in finding their career path on Thursday.
Great Falls College MSU hosted a 'Pathway for Your L.I.F.E' event that focused on students' futures.
More than 700 high school and middle school students explored a variety of careers through hands-on demonstrations throughout the day.
The L.I.F.E event featured eight industries with careers in construction, manufacturing, technology, arts, and human services.
According to organizers, L.I.F.E stands for 'Learn, Interact, Formulate and Educate' and the event's goal was to engage students to think about their future through an interactive approach.
"We know that all of us don't know what we don't know and so it's good for them to just see what is out there and available and maybe be exposed to something they didn't know about before," Great Falls College MSU Montana Career Pathways Coordinator Shannon Marr said.
The Great Falls Public School District and United Way of Cascade County also partnered with Great Falls College MSU to host the event.
