Career Development Elementary
Youth Discover the Trades Day
SD27 Career Programs is thrilled to incorporate Youth Discover the Trades Programs in classrooms across the district. With industry partners such as Taesko/Gibraltar Mines, Thompson Rivers University – WL and the Industry Trade Authority, opportunities to explore the trades are wide and exciting. The programs vary from one day events with local tradespeople to regular classroom activities that incorporate trades thinking and skill building. Students learn about what a trade is and why trades are awesome!
Potential trades that students may have the opportunity to explore include, but are not limited to:
Carpentry, Welding, Electrical, Automotive Service, Heavy Duty Mechanics, Plumbing and Millwrighting.
ADST Travelling Trades Kits
Applied Design, Skills and Technology integration opportunities are abundant in regular classroom activities. From grades K-5, learning can be embedded in classroom learning and from grades 6-8, learning can be presented as modules with a focus in exploring a variety of content areas.
Various SD27 ADST district kits are now becoming available. With relation to trades, careers skills can also be discussed when in use. Topics include: Plumbing (Marble Roller Coasters), Electrical (LED Light-up cards), Carpentry (Nail string art) and more! Please inquire to the Elementary ADST and Career Ed. resource teacher for more information.
