Students at Tumbler Ridge Secondary School had the opportunity last year to participate in a five-month project building go karts. The project brought together teachers, students, industry, community, and civil leaders. The students not only learned how to build go karts, they also learned how to work as a team, put together a plan, analyze and assess criteria, develop strategies, communicate, and problem solve which is all related to the education curriculum.
The Industry Training Authority (ITA) supported the project by providing funds through a Yes To It grant. ITA also created a video of the event which showcases the project and includes testimonials from students, SD59 Career Team members, ITA and industry leaders. Check out the You-tube video.
