“Combining real hands-on learning with established academic programming is essential to building 21st century skills so essential and in high demand throughout our region. We are committed to this on-going educational effort and proud to again support this year’s workshop and career opportunity,” said Greg Connors, President of the Saratoga Economic Development Corporation, in the release.
