Girls and Go Carts!
All this week at the College of the North Atlantic a dozen young girls are building some great go-carts! The girls are part of GETT - Girls Exploring Trades and Technology hosted each summer at Clarenville Campus.
This Women in Resource Development program is designed to introduce girls to technology and trade careers and encourages them to consider a variety of career choices. It's a free program that is sponsored by the oil industry and it seeks to reinforces the importance of taking science; advanced math subjects and industrial arts in high school by stressing the impact those subjects have on career decisions.
If you have some time, take the opportunity to come out on Friday afternoon, Aug. 17 at 1:30 in the parking lot of Clarenville Middle School to see what these girls have created and witness just how much they have learned.
