Girls to get hands on with trades and technology at career exploration event
More than 100 Pathfinders and Rangers, ages 12 to 17, expected to attend
Tween and teenage girls from across Edmonton will learn about technology and trades at the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology’s career exploration evening for Pathfinders and Rangers.
The evening will include hands-on activities like changing tires in one of the polytechnic’s Automotive Service Technician labs and trying some simple maneuvers using one of the Crane and Hoisting program’s boom trucks. Pathfinders and Rangers are part of the Girl Guides of Canada.
The event is hosted by NAIT Women in Technology and Trades (WITT). WITT’s goal is to ensure prospective female students are aware of opportunities in technical fields, including the trades, science and technology. Women remain under-represented in these areas. WITT holds several events throughout the year.
