Real World Learning
Nothing is more satisfying for our students than to see theory applied in the real world! Students joined their instructor, Bert Gaudet, at the Village of Borden's pristine RO membrane facility on September 27th to learn the hands-on practicalities of running an RO plant. Special thanks to Borden Public Works Coordinator, Kendal Redhead, and to the staff, mayor and council of the Village of Borden for this exceptional opportunity to tour their plant. We also thank our students who kindly granted us permission to photo-document their tour. We hoped that you enjoyed the workshop!
