LCVI students build a pathway to their future

On March 2, Lindsay Collegiate and Vocational Institute (LCVI) students had the opportunity to build a pathway to their future by taking part in a Architecture, Engineering, and Construction Day.

The presentation was divided into two sessions, with Grade 10 students participating in the morning and Grade 11 students in the afternoon. In each session, students heard from Fleming College’s Brooke Lynch, and LCVI graduate, Karl Repka, who spoke about pursuing careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields, and the many different connections to pathways (apprenticeship, community, workplace, college and university).

Attendees then had the opportunity to participate in interactive sessions, delivered by Wilcox Architects, PRI Engineering, Counterpoint Engineering, Infrastructure Health and Safety Association, MVW Constructions & Engineering Inc., Lafarge, Sadler Welding and Fabrication, and Fleming College. Each station had students learning about various career pathways connected to STEM.

“Our students gained great insights into the variety of pathways available,” said LCVI teacher. “The presenters did an excellent job of sharing their insights about the work that they do, their educational backgrounds, and their current projects, many of which are right here in the City of Kawartha lakes.”

“I had no idea that there were so many companies here locally doing all this work,” said LCVI Grade 10 student. “I am definitely going to start thinking more about my own pathway through cooperative education and maybe a Specialist High Skills Major.”
