Young Engineers and Scientist. It's the 20th annual YES Days, helping local students explore the career field.

Students rotate from booth to booth for hands on learning from local University and college teachers and businesses who have made a career out of science or engineering.

Seventh and Eighth graders across both Washington and Morgan County are participating at Washington State Community College both today and tomorrow.

Organizers say it's about showing the students what is available both nation wide and locally.

"We have this event each year and bring the kids to campus so they can see what the college environment is like as well as invite the businesses in so they can show the students what they do in local industry and get them interested so we can hire local people into our jobs and economy, you know rather than bringing them in outside," says YES Days 2012 chairperson, Shirley Singrees.

Nearly 900 students are participating both Thursday and Friday, exploring 36 different booths.

YES Days is organized by community members and runs completely off donations.
