EESS Tech Camp provides hands-on fun
Justice Csinos, 12, of Aylmer showed off his just completed (and dry) classic car he made out of wood and stained in the woodworking classroom at East Elgin Secondary School on Thursday morning, July 9 during the Technology Camp offered there that week for pupils entering Grade 8. The four-day free camp had 19 pre-teens build projects in both the woodworking and electronics classrooms at the Aylmer high school. Each pupil was able to take one project home that they worked on from each classroom. The camp, offered for the past several years, had pupils explore and use new tools and machines, acquire new skills and get a head start on their high school careers. The program receives a grant each year, usually about $2,000, from the Ontario Youth Apprenticeship Program.
