Jr. High JAG students tour Bossier Parish Community College

Natchitoches Jr. High JAG students toured Bossier Parish Community College on Jan. 27. They toured the nursing ward, communication/theater department, and the engineering department (learned about 3D printing & welding). Students were given an opportunity to interact with the simulated  mannequins. Madison assisted with the delivery of a baby while Annie and Dominic provided everyone with a weather report.
After the tour, students attended an escape room. They were broken up into three teams. Each team was given 60 mins to demonstrate their ability to work as a team to solve the mystery. Unfortunately, neither team made it out before the time expired but they were close.
