Girls entering Grades 10-12 who are interested in engineering or trades careers can still register for Hands-on Diesel 101, a summer program co-hosted by SFU’s mechatronics engineering program. The five-day camp, to be run in collaboration with Cummins Western Canada (CWC), BCIT, VCC and Junior Achievement, includes three days of tearing down a Cummins engine, reassembling it and seeing it run. The other two days include discussions with CWC employees on working with engines and the challenges of balancing work and home life.

Participants will also learn about the prerequisites for entering engineering or the trades. Space is limited in the $50 one-week program Aug. 31-Sept. 4 at CWC’s Surrey branch and at VCC. The fee includes safety glasses, lunch and a t-shirt. Application deadline is June 15. To apply or for information, visit http://westerncanada.cummins.com or email Ching.L.Gettman@Cummins.com.

I was wondering if I stood a chance to get accepted into the Diesel 101 program even though I do not live in the Vancouver area?
