    I teach AutoCAD 2D/3D, Inventor Modelling/Rendering, CorelDRAW and CorelPHOTOPAINT, DTP and electronics,woodwork, metalwork etc. I teach 12-18yr olds at a scottish high school.

    I suggest you just get them to 'shadow' you for half an hr working on your 'typical' projects. Print off a floorplan orsomething and let them try out a simple project (floorplan) for themselves.

    45 min seems like a long time unless those kids chose to go to your company :eek:

    Anyway, tell them that it sucks and they shouldn't do it....(job security for us )

    I would avoid a presentation where they sit and watch/listen for 45mins. It is too long for that age to sit and concentrate.They will be bored after ten mins.

    Good luck, tell us how it goes.

    Not sure how to mess with scripts.

    I have to agree that 45 min is to long but I was told I would have the kids for 45min. So we might do some kind of tour.

    That is probably my best bet.

    Thanks Mr. T
