Middle Bucks Institute of Technology (MBIT), locat­ed at 2740 York Road (Route 263), Jamison, PA is host­ing its annu­al Open House for mid­dle school and high school stu­dents on Thursday, December 1, 2022.  The event will take place from 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. There will be two infor­ma­tion­al ses­sions for prospec­tive stu­dents and their par­ents: one begin­ning at 6:00 p.m. and the sec­ond begin­ning at 7:00 p.m. in our cafe­te­ria.  Ms. Laurinda Hellwig, School Counselor says “The infor­ma­tion­al ses­sion will be an oppor­tu­ni­ty for poten­tial stu­dents and their parents/guardians to learn about MBIT and how Career & Technical Education may enhance the student’s post-secondary options. We will also cov­er the appli­ca­tion process and time­line that evening so appli­cants know what to expect when apply­ing to MBIT.”

There will be student-led demon­stra­tions in pro­gram areas which will be the main focus of the evening. In the main lob­by, vis­i­tors will find a list­ing of each program’s activ­i­ties, so they can explore all of our lab areas. Visitors will have oppor­tu­ni­ties to speak with fac­ul­ty, staff, and stu­dents as well as to gath­er valu­able career infor­ma­tion.  Prospective stu­dents, par­ents, and com­mu­ni­ty mem­bers are invit­ed to exam­ine MBIT’s cur­ricu­lum and work-based oppor­tu­ni­ties to learn how MBIT can help stu­dents estab­lish foun­da­tions for suc­cess­ful career paths. Ms. Jeanise Dimitri, Communications and Technology Specialist says, “After two years of vir­tu­al open hous­es, it is excit­ing to have the com­mu­ni­ty back on our cam­pus and we are able to show off the incred­i­ble resources that real­ly help the stu­dents start to think now about their career options.”
