Students from grades 10 through 12 participated in several different workshops, highlighting different trade options at the Regina Trades and Skills Centre.
Gordon Heidel with Regina District Industry Education Council says the day provides insight into a future in the industry.
“It really is critical. The sooner that we can help kids to find a sense of direction, where they want to go, the more relevance school has and the better they’re going to do.”
Heidel says the trades industry is still strong and has a lot to offer young people, despite the downturn in the economy.
