EPIC is a large scale event that features a variety of career pathways from 4 distinct sectors –Environment & Agriculture, Health, STEM (Science-Technology-Engineering-Math) and Trades. Up to 600 high school students have the opportunity to explore a wide range of career pathways in a meaningful and impactful manner. The interactive nature of EPIC allows students to connect directly with professionals and get a glimpse of what it might be like to work in that specific field. Exhibitors have the opportunity to showcase their business and meet future prospects.

Students can expect:

  • To be registered in one of four sectors – Environment & Agriculture, Health, STEM or Trades.
  • To meet hosts working in that specific industry during the morning – students can start their own network of contacts.
  • To participate in interactive displays – rather than just talking to hosts, students will experience a small part of the job and gain a greater insight into what the occupation involves.
  • To learn what it takes to work in that specific industry, including the highlights/low-lights of the job.
  • after lunch, to have an opportunity to explore the other three sectors or return to hosts they might have missed in their sector earlier in the day.
