On May 25, 26 and 29, staff from the Elementary Guidance and 21C/STEAM Departments organized a Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics (STEAM) and AR/VR workshops for students of Holy Child Catholic School, St. Simon Catholic School, St. Margherita of Città di Castello Catholic School, James Culnan Catholic School, Canadian Martyrs Catholic School and St. Francis de Sales Catholic School.

This workshop was organized in partnership with Humber College to provide students with the opportunity to explore post-secondary and career options in the latest technologies in robotics, automated guided vehicles, and collaborative robots, with a quick introduction to Mechatronics. Additionally, students also explored different areas of 3D design, from motion capture to simulation engines to designing in Virtual Reality.

Staff from the Elementary Guidance and 21C/STEAM Departments hope that these opportunities will further encourage students to pursue careers in STEAM, an important pathway for growing Canada’s economy.
