EduTech is a non profit event promoting and advancing career and awareness linkages between the Peninsula Advanced Technology and Manufacturing Sectors, secondary students and the local community members.

Students are invited to attend the 2018 EduTech event Thursday, February 15th at the Shoal Centre in Sidney.  School bus transportation will be provided to and from the event.

The goal of EduTech is to connect Saanich Peninsula employers from the technology and manufacturing sectors with potential employees as well
