MCSC & BITSpace Development Celebrate Skills Canada National Competition

- by La Donna Ogungbemi-Jackson

Last week, the Skills Canada National Competition 2017 was held at the RBC Convention Centre in Winnipeg. Competitors from across the country demonstrated their skills with precision among the thousands of spectators (students, teachers, exhibitors, etc.) and their judges.

MCSC and BITSpace Development shared a booth where we promoted careers in construction through VR tools, Trade Talk videos and interactive games. We knew we had a hit with the high number of students and teachers asking questions and waiting to try the various devices.
