The Canadian Coast Guard team & Shanty Singer Seán Dagher (December 8)
Ships2Shores and the Centre for Ocean Ventures & Entrepreneurship (COVE) are excited to announce a new series: Full STEAM Ahead. Full STEAM Ahead gives Grade 6-9 students the opportunity to ‘go to work with’ some of the coolest marine professionals working in Canada, while also engaging in arts & culture activities. The result is an all-round STEAM experience!
In the first half of each session, professionals will give students a tour of their workplace, cover the day-to-day aspects, explain what led them to their profession, and debunk common misconceptions about the marine sector. In the second half, we will invite Canadian musicians, artists, and storytellers from various backgrounds to engage youth in creative activities, intended to increase cross-cultural awareness and awareness of Canada’s maritime history.
For our fifth session, members of the Coast Guard’s Workforce Development Recruitment and Retention team, Dominique Debrosse and Josie Sandham, will share insights into the Coast Guard’s important work on land and on sea, across Central Canada. Participants will also learn about exciting job opportunities with the Coast Guard. For the second session, multitalented shanty singer Seán Dagher will engage with students while sharing his art.
