It will be a busy weekend at St. Clair College.

Saturday is the College wide open house, with all campuses open from 10am to 1pm. Visitors will be able to talk to Faculty in all college programs, tour the campus, and find out about the student support services available to help students be successful. There will also be a number of employers on hand to talk to students about the job market in their field.

“This is the perfect time for parents and their students to check out everything St. Clair has to offer,” says Waseem Habash, Vice President Academic. “We strongly encourage students to walk around campus, talk to the faculty and get a good feel for the environment. It goes a long way towards knowing that St. Clair is a good fit.”

In addition, the College will also be hosting the 3rd Annual Get Skilled High School competition at the Windsor Campus. This year there will be more than 70 students from the Public and Separate School Boards competing in 8 categories including Architectural CAD, Mechanical CAD, Automotive Service, Culinary, Photography, Precision Machining, Welding and Carpentry. Students from both school boards will be competing for gold, silver and bronze medals in each division. The Get Skilled competition starts at 8:30am with medals being awarded at 2pm in the Student Centre on the first floor.

The final event this weekend is the Windsor Regional Science, Technology, and Engineering Fair, a second-tier science competition that showcases projects from students in grades 4 to 12. For many, participating in science fairs at this level is the first real opportunity to think critically about science and get hands-on experience conducting an experiment.

Students present their projects to qualified judges from the University, St. Clair College, teachers from all three school boards and the community. They also participate in activities such as Mad Science presentations, a Chemistry Magic show presented by the University Science Department, and hands-on activities in the FCEM building. WRSTEF is organized by volunteers from the University, St. Clair College, teachers, and principals. The Science Fair takes place in the Main Gym on Saturday, April 2nd, with awards and presentations on Sunday, April 3rd.
