Discover Technology!!! Summer Camp for grades 6 and 7
We are having our second annual Laurier Technology Camp this year at Sir Wilfrid Laurier Seconday School. This unique and exciting opportunity is designed for the student who is interested in technology and may take some tech courses in highschool or are at least interested in learning more about the fascinating world of Tech. We know that the future for so many young adults involves apprenticeships, trades and technical training. We would like to give students the opportunity to try exploring the various types of technology.
As you can see from the attached flyer, students will explore Construction, Manufacturing, Transportation and Communication. We will of course, begin each part of the program with thorough safety training in each shop area. The teachers involved with this unique and exciting venture are seasoned professionals and have over 65 years of teaching experience between them.
Students who are planning to consider Laurier as their secondary school and are in grades 6 and 7 are the target audience for this camp. This summer program is partially funded by the Ontario Youth Apprenticeship Program (OYAP) to provide an opportunity to heighten awareness of Technology programs in London Schools as well as across the entire Thames Valley District School Board.
We have been able to keep costs down to a minimum of $20.00 for the week to help offset some of the costs in the operation of this camp. Lunch will not be provided until the final day (Friday) where we will have a pizza party. Drinks are included. Parents will be expected to drop off and pick up their children within 15 minutes of the beginning and ending of the camp day.
If you have any questions about this great opportunity, please feel free to call us at Sir Wilfrid Laurier SS at 519 452 2840. Direct inquiries to Erica please.
