The Butler Tech Career Lab is an interactive experience that combines tours, video learning and hands-on activities designed to spark student interest in various career pathways. The Career Lab is located at our Fairfield Township campus.
Here’s how the Career Lab works:
Before their visit, students will complete a brief career assessment. When they arrive, they will learn about two program or occupational areas that best match the interests identified in the assessment, including:
- skills, abilities, and knowledge required
- career options by varying degree level
- average salary
- job outlook
- education required
- Ohio Department of Education Career Pathway
- Ohio Department of Education suggested secondary and post-secondary pathway.
The Butler Tech Career Lab take the place of the 8th grade tours. Unlike the tours, which were limited to a single week, the Career Lab will be open throughout the school year making it easier to access. It also will help your school district meet the HB 487 Career Advising requirement.

**2020-21 Scheduling Update: In an effort to minimize visitors to our campuses due to COVID-19, and to minimize any exposure to visitors, Butler Tech will delay visits to our Career Lab until the Fall of 2021. However, in place of Career Lab visits, this year we will be creating a virtual Butler Tech 360 Experience for the eighth graders. The Butler Tech 360 Experience will roll out in January 2021, to all eighth graders at our eleven participating school districts. Stay tuned for more details, a promo video, and an innovative way to experience Butler Tech! **
