TECH TUESDAY-The DSBN Skills Challenges are getting closer week by week.
The Tech Department is keen to get the message out that Trades and Technology can be a very significant part of a high school education, and a great career option.  Whether it is a Grade 9 Exploring Technologies course, or a focus program like the Specialist High Skills Major with a Coop placement, students benefit from learning about Technology and Trade options.
The DSBN Technological Skills challenges and Tech Tuesdays likewise help to communicate this message to students.  Many trade sectors and employer groups are concerned about the shortages of skilled tradespeople.  It may surprise you to learn that after the Service Sector, the Manufacturing Sector is still the next largest trade sector for employment, followed by Construction.
Mr Demers will be hosting a Tech Tuesday next week on the 13th of February in room 109 in preparation for the DSBN Electrical Wiring Challenge that will take place at Niagara College on the 28th of February.
For more information, please see Mr. Demers in room.
