Students in the Hants North Rural High Techsploration class visited IMP Aerospace recently to observe their two mentors, female aircraft mechanics responsible for maintaining Sea King helicopters, on the job. The visit is part of the Techsploration Goes to Work phase of the course. The students are researching their mentors' career path in preparation for the Techsplorers Ed Event that will be held at the NSCC Truro Campus in May.

The Techsploration program provides young women from grades 9 through 12 with opportunities to explore science, trades, and technology occupations, while creating awareness about the critical role of work in their lives.  It also helps them understand the significance of high school mathematics and science for their future careers.
