What do you want to be when you grow? That's a question adults often ask children.

To make sure students have an educated answer, Johnston Elementary School hosted a career fair.

Mechatronics students from UNC-Asheville visited the school to demonstrate how they use technology to solve problems and make things better. In another room, there was a banker who explained the numerous positions in her chosen career. There was also a physical therapist who showed how she uses her instruments to help people.

Students at Johnston Elementary said they've learned quite a bit and have already chosen a career path.

Eleven different career fields were represented at this years event.
