The future of BC is bright!
This was the message many students from Pender and Saturna walked away with, following an engaging exploration of career opportunities at Pender Islands School.
Students in Grades 2-12 explored a variety of interactive stations designed to teach youth about up and coming career opportunities in British Columbia. Brought to us by WorkBC, a vibrant young team of university-aged students, shared their passion and knowledge with over 100 students from the two schools.
Students learned about becoming a General Practitioner, Early Childhood Educator, Automotive Technician and Pilot among many others. Whether they tinkered with electronics, soared the skies with a flight simulator, practiced checking air pressure or engaged in interactive software applications, students were excited to explore the stations with their class and then return after school for more.
Find Your Fit generated great enthusiasm and discussion for our young minds as they look forward to a bright future and a promising career. After all, who doesn’t dream and wonder: What do you want to be when you grow up?
