SLOMEworks hard to spark curiosity. It enables youth to sample careers they may not have considered before and gives them an opportunity to experience the transferable skills required in today’s job market.
SLOME’s focus is on the emerging industries of Science, Technology and the Trades. Last year over 2,800 students from Elgin, Middlesex, Oxford Counties and The City of London from grades 7-12, including private schools, 4 different school boards and 250 teachers and school volunteers attended.
Are you looking for a one day opportunity to inspire youth on a career in your field? Would you like to get involved in developing your workforce of tomorrow? SLOME is held at the Western Fair Agriplex Building from 9am – 3pm on May 16th 2012.
Watch SLOME 2011in action; with the help of over 20 volunteers, 25 sponsors, 49+ interactive activities and 250 exhibitor representatives.
What participants had to say….
