In December of 2019, the Pathways Exploration Room, housed at St. Joan of Arc in Oakville, hosted its first sessions. Students in grades 6 to 8 were able to explore a variety of stations related to different trades and industries
- hairstyling & esthetics: different types of hair, accessories, hair straighteners, and nail polish are available to create unique styles
- robotic arms: students use a controller to manipulate the arms to build structures, similar to using forklift or digger controls
- woodworking: using a template, students first cut out a wooden cross on the scroll saw, then etch a design using a rotary tool
- coding: for all levels of ability, students develop their coding skills on the computer
- 3D pens: structures, art-work, fashion accessories, you name it! Students can create anything with these versatile pens.
