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 first session, we will welcome mechanical engineer Joshua Awe and musician Ian Bell. Register for Full STEAM Ahead today!
