Lethbridge College’s Centre for Applied Research and Innovation and its partners are inviting the community to campus during the next few weeks for a host of different hands-on learning opportunities and entrepreneurship training programs.
Two of the programs are focused on aquaponics, a growing academic discipline which combines aquaculture (farming fish or other aquatic species such as shrimp, lobster, mussels or oysters) and hydroponics (growing plants by feeding them nutrient-rich water in a controlled environment and using either natural or artificial light).
The other two programs are designed to help budding entrepreneurs and people with great ideas for start-up businesses.
“These events provide tremendous opportunities for students to engage with industry and advance their careers where they will learn important skills, connect with each other and meet successful business owners and entrepreneurs from across Alberta” says Gina Funicelli, Lethbridge College’s Dean of the Centre for Applied Research and Innovation.
