Led and hosted by Carpenters Local 93, Sisters were among the members who helped young women, in grades seven and eight, learn construction skills. Covering the Upper Canada District School Board, the event was a day dedicated to the Carpentry industry.
More than 150 students learned the intricacies of woodworking, and participated in a virtual reality simulation of working from a high rise. They were also taught other skills: how to use power tools and the math involved in making a single cut; how to put on a safety harness and its function; how to build scaffolding and its uses.
In addition to learning a lot, the young women had fun.
