  • Talk to designers and developers working with robotics and autonomous vehicles
  • Hear from museum volunteers, who will talk about their past work experiences in the industry

Younger cadets will benefit from the potential sparking of ideas that will keep them in the maths and sciences through high school. Older cadets will also benefit as there will be representatives of colleges and universities talking about programs as well as the industry folks who are looking for good students for coops and internships, summer jobs etc. Older cadets can bring copies of their resumes if they are seriously hunting for a position, if you have a few that are starting to look for work opportunities or even wanting to start inquiring about coops etc. because you are going into related post-secondary programs, don’t be shy! If you are interested in signing up please email 211.activities@gmail.com, by Friday January 10th, as we need to confirm numbers with the organizers.
