"A great display. Teachers - technical,
science and CAPP - are using it as much or more than students!"
"Staff are impressed with the unit
and resources. One staff member has reported that she has included
the video as part of an assignment which she is tying in with
the upcoming BCIT Open House. It's going to be great for career
fairs and parent open houses."
"This is an excellent creation -
I hope to see more like it for other [career] areas as well. Through
TechBAR! my son found a program that offers civil, mechanical
and building all in one - just the thing he was thinking of! 'Good
Job' from a parent to TechWORKS!"
"Many of my students had no idea
what many of these careers were. In the last week I had a student
looking into geomatics, one into environmental technology and
one into biotechnology thanks to TechBAR! The two-year diploma
programs are very attractive to many of my students as are the
starting salaries and job futures."
"On behalf of the staff in the Career
Centers in SD #68 Naniamo - Ladysmith, I would like to thank you
very much for the TechBAR!s that you recently delivered. Staff
are thrilled and are already planning how to use them with various
classes and groups within the school."
"There were some very positive comments
from other group members about the TechBAR! - so much so that
three junior high schools want them."
