Recently, the Wideman Education Foundation and Simon Fraser University Surrey hosted a project management competition asking students the question “Why should high school students attend post-secondary education”?
Have you ever wondered what high school students really think about post secondary education? Ten teams from five high schools in Surrey gathered this Saturday at the SFU Surrey campus to compete in the second annual Wideman Education Foundation (WEF) Project Management competition. The competition featured teams of high school students who produced short videos on why students like them should consider post secondary education. The event was jointly organized by the WEF, the Faculty of Business Administration and the School of Interactive Arts and Technology at SFU.
