The Rhode Island Marine Trades Association in partnership with My Turn of Rhode Island and the Industry Skills Development Initiative will be running the program.

More than 130 students in middle and high school, along with group leaders from Pawtucket, Warwick, Providence, and the Bristol-Warren school districts, will participate.

“We are really pleased to have this opportunity to show the youth of Rhode Island how important the marine industry is to this state,” show director Nancy Piffard said in a statement. “And if they are considering a career that will keep them in the state, the marine industry is one of the best choices they can make.  This industry is here to stay and growing.”
