Take Our Kids To Work Day University of Manitoba U of M


IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO REGISTER FOR THE BANNATYNE CAMPUS, PLEASE EMAIL Darcy.Routledge@umanitoba.ca to see if space has opened up.

On November 1, 2017 thousands of Grade 9 students from across Manitoba will spend a day job shadowing a parent, relative, friend, or volunteer host for Take Our Kids to Work Day.

This experience assists students in understanding the importance of staying in school, helps them gain an appreciation of the working world, and demonstrates the connection between education and their future.

The University of Manitoba supports this program and believes it is a great opportunity to highlight the diversity of roles at our university while developing connections with future U of M students.

As an active supporter of Take Our Kids to Work Day, the Rady Faculty of Health Sciences has developed a full-day program hosted at the Bannatyne Campus, from 8:30 a.m. - 3:30 p.m., for Grade 9 students, including lunch with parents/hosts.  Students will enjoy a day of hands-on activities, performing various scientific and medical techniques. The program includes exposure to a variety of health sciences professions and scientific careers, fun activities and workshops highlighting the diversity of health sciences education in the Rady Faculty.

The schedule for the day will be as follows:
