Program Description

At the Sea to Sky Gondola there is a conscious effort to apply knowledge, principles, and values to more than one academic discipline simultaneously. By doing this, an environment has been created where both technology and nature have come together in harmony. In one trip your class can learn about both the engineering of the gondola and the natural environment in which it resides and understand how the two disciplines can work in harmony. During this program students experience the best of both the Junior Engineers and the Junior Rangers programs woven together.
