Northern Lakes College, in partnership with the Canadian Welding Association Foundation and Shell, celebrated the successful completion of the Mind Over Metal Welding Camp. This one-week camp for youth between the ages of 12 to 15 was held at the Northern Lakes College Mobile Trades Lab that was set up at the High Prairie campus.
The camp ran from July 17 - 21, 2017, and students learned about safety procedures in welding, proper use of hand and power tools, the basics of Gas Metal Arc Welding, and from guest speakers. Students created three different projects during the Mind Over Metal Welding Camp, which they brought home. The welding camp was free to students thanks to the generous donations of the College’s partners: The Canadian Welding Association Foundation and Shell. The students celebrated the week on Friday with a luncheon and certificate award ceremony. They also had the opportunity to take their family and friends on a tour of the Northern Lakes College Mobile Trades Lab and showcase their projects.
