In the first book, “Blaze Goes to College,” Blaze and his class learn about college and careers in the arts, health care, STEM fields and more. In the second book, “Blaze Goes to the RMTC,” Blaze, his classmate Bella and their class learn about manufacturing and skilled trades careers at KCC’s Regional Manufacturing Technology Center.
