The excursion focused on the students learning about how the world of work is changing and the skills that will be most important for them as they move into the workforce. Students then rotated through three activities that expose them to industry-changing technologies and new ways of problem-solving.
"We did three different activities such as VR, laser cutting, and robot programming. All of the activities were super cool and interesting and they taught us so much about how the world is changing because of new technology". – Rahni Mrzygloski, 7A
