Two Niagara Catholic students will travel to Saskatoon, Saskatchewan later this month, as part of Team Ontario for the Skills Canada competition 2015, after winning gold at Skills Ontario at RIM Park in Waterloo May 4-6.

Alex DiPaola, a student at Notre Dame College School, won Gold in the Mechanical CADD (Computer Aided Design and Drafting) category. This event tests the student’s ability to visualize the size, shape and proportions of two-dimensional drawings in three dimensions.

Alex Powell, a student at Saint Michael Catholic High School, won Gold in the Electronics category. This event tests the student’s strong analytical skills, persistence, keen problem-solving and troubleshooting abilities, mathematical aptitude, knowledge of computers and excellent hand-eye co-ordination.
