Students will learn about trades
PORT HAWKESBURY — A oneday Skills Canada-Nova Scotia career exploration event will give about 70 junior and high school students the opportunity to explore skilled trade and technology career options in the energy sector.
The 15th annual Skilled Futures in Energy event will be held today at the Strait campus of the Nova Scotia Community College in Port Hawkesbury.
The Strait Regional School Board students in Grades 9, 10 and 11 will participate in hands-on workshops ranging from marine engineering to steamfitting/pipefitting and welding. “Through Skilled Futures in Energy, students might be learning to operate a marine vessel one hour, and then constructing an electrical component the next,” Robin Lorway, executive director of Skills Canada-Nova Scotia, said in a release Tuesday.
