Thank you to community partners that help us make connections between local projects and curriculum for our students! The following was contributed by Mr Jeff Mayer from the NPSS Careers Department.
Late in October, students were treated to a tour of the Site C dam site-courtesy of SNC-Lavalin and BC Hydro. Students were bused down to the site, along with many other professionals including engineers, geologists, and environmental specialists. The conversation was lively and the questions were very technical. Students gained valuable insight into the processes, procedures, and problems that can arise with such a large scale project.
We would like to thank BC Hydro’s Mike and Linsday, and Scott at SNC-Lavalin for thinking about SD 60 when it came to planning a tour of this project.
