Project Based Learning – Putting Theory to Practice
Organizer: Conestoga College
During this session, students and faculty will be highlighting the different ways that Conestoga College promotes project-based learning. This includes:
• Yearly projects students must complete, which allows students to apply the theory they have been taught.
• Allowing students to compete in events such as CES (Conestoga Engineering Society) hosted engineering competitions, OEC (Ontario Engineering Competition) and CEC (Canadian Engineering Competition)
• Design teams (Baja SAE, Formula SAE, and Concrete Taboggan)
Finally, students will talk about co-op placements they have had with local companies, where they’re able to apply the skills and knowledge acquired from the project-based learning and put them to practice in industry.
Age Range: High school (ages 12 to 17)
