    Where:  WinSport International Arena, Calgary

    Cost:  Team cost is $80.00 - invoiced directly to the school post event.
    The purpose of Skills Exploration Days is to:

    1) Inspire junior high students to identify inherent skills and interests.

    2) Connect students' skills and interests to trade and technology careers through interactive, hands-on experiences that promote creativity, empathy, and exploration.

    3) Promote trade and technology careers as a valuable and rewarding career choice.

    Building on the Maker Day model and Alberta Education's Career and Technology Foundations (CTF) Program of Studies, students will use the design thinking process to find a solution to the challenge in the classroom and will then build a prototype with tangible real life tools and materials at Skills Exploration Days.
