TORONTO — May’s #SkillsAnywhereChallenge, hosted by Skills Ontario, asks participants to design and build a miniature park using only popsicle sticks, string, scissors and a hot glue gun.
The fourth challenge in the series aims to inspire and encourage Ontarians of all ages to explore the skilled trades and technologies.
By measuring and forging pieces together, participants get an at-home experience of the world of manufacturing, a skilled trade sector in need of skilled professionals, indicates a release.
