TRADES & TECH EXPO

The 14th Annual Trades & Technology Expo
Medicine Hat College : Tues. April 30, 2019

Youth Careers in partnership with the Medicine Hat College Trades and Sciences Departments, and with funding from the Ministry of Labour, aims to provide high school students and the general public with the opportunity to experience trades and technology related careers, and network with local participating organizations. Local organizations and Medicine Hat College Trades and Sciences programs will have interactive displays and/or information booths. Individuals can also tour through the competition areas for the SE Alberta Regional Skills Competition, which is held at the College on the same day.

The Trades and Technology Expo is specifically designed to generate career awareness to students in grades 7-12 with specific emphasis on the Trades.  This event is supported by the various Trade and Technology departments in Medicine Hat College as well as Industry partners and representatives.

These participants generate unique “hands-on activities” for over 1000 visiting youth.
