Have you ever wondered how many diodes there are on the LED ribbon panel that surrounds the bowl of the arena or wondered how many metres it is around the main concourse? Finding out these answers is only a part of the many activities the students set out to do in their week.
Going behind the scenes in places rarely explored by the average Edmontonian is part of the week’s excitement. Students watch the Oilers and Oil Kings as they practice, meet those who work in the Rexall Warehouse and learn how supplies are stored and delivered to the concessions before an event, watch chefs in action and learn about the incredible number of kilometers of piping used under the ice surface. These are new discoveries students will never forget.
Questioning, interviewing, discovering and exploring are all part of the ICE School experience. The best part of all is students leave with a new understanding of how we can learn. But more importantly they learn from those they meet that choosing a career means finding a passion and following your dreams.
The Edmonton Oilers Community Foundations has supported this program since its inception in 2003.
