Grade 8 Technology Day 2012

On Thursday the 26th of January, students from Stephen Leacock, Katimavik, and Castlefrank schools joined student volunteers as well as Mr. Martin and Mr. Pemberton in Earl’s Technology workshops for an exciting day. Students learned about Tech at Earl and created a project of their own! Students were given a tour of our Custom Woodworking and Manufacturing Engineering facilities as well as learning what they would be doing in the grade 9 course, TIJ 1O Exploring Technologies , next year. The day was a huge success and gave students a real appreciation of what the TIJ 1O gateway course can lead to. For more information on where this program can take you, have a look at what some of our graduates are saying in the Technology Questionnaire
