Nova Scotia Construction Sector Council

Hands-on activities are guided by industry professionals at each of the booths. The TEH and the MCE both help to tap into the communities and engage people that will be the province’s future ICI industry. “We took a scaled-down version of our TEH on the road, to incredible success,” smiles Soholt. “We had thousands of visitors very, very quickly. We have requests from schools all around the province.” “It was created out of necessity,” says Soholt. “We have brought the industry tangibly to the classroom in a way that participants can experience the industry safely. It’s been quite phenomenal to see the evolution of this educational model. Now we have mentors who first learned of their trade in one of our exhibitions. It’s very rewarding.” For more information, please visit A Labourer trades professional teaching a Trades Exhibition Hall participant A Mobile Construction Experience participant tries the welding simulator with guidance from a Pipe Trades Professional A Sheet Metal trades professional teaching a group of adults and children at the Trades Exhibition Hall Open House A Pipe Trades professional teaching a Trades Exhibition Hall participant 9
