Students at Sachem High School East learned all about heavy machinery during a hands-on visit from The Learn Center. The Learn Center, based right in Ronkonkoma, is the only New York State Education Department licensed school to teach heavy equipment operation and safety. It’s an integral member of the Sachem HS East Business Alliance and partners with the school to engage with students.

Students taking business, social studies and technology classes got a firsthand look into the construction field from The Learn Center’s owners, the Guidi family. They had the opportunity to network and learn the desirable job skills in the construction field. Some students even operated an excavator in the school’s parking lot. The visit provided students with an in-depth look at a field they can pursue after graduation.
