Right from the start my students felt like they were special and their ideas were valued. You created opportunities for students to apply their classroom learning to real-world scenarios. Comments from my students included: “I feel more informed.” & “I feel like renewable energy is more accessible.” I look forward to being involved with future events. Many thanks!!

Experience the possibilities: A new kind of careers education!

With a growing number of career opportunities available to students it is important to provide them with the information they need to help them make career choices. For this we believe in the E’s – explore, experience and engage.

The ABC Project is an experiential learning event for junior and senior high school students designed to investigate science, technology and careers in Alberta’s Boreal Region. During the program students will discover a myriad of career options & paths, learn about post-secondary requirements, have day-in-life experiences, meet leaders in the field and assess future employment possibilities.

On the program, your team will take part in a variety of engaging interactive activities  and discussions that tell the stories of professionals working in natural resource and environment fields.

The Alberta Boreal Careers Project will be held April 24 – 25, 2018 in Bonnyville/Cold Lake region.

Join Inside Education for two all-expenses paid days of career exploration. The program includes expert guests, potential for an overnight stay at a work lodge, a tour of an active oil sands operation and tons of hands on activities! To give you an idea of what to expect, take a look at a past itinerary here from our Fall 2017 Program.
