Tyler Stewart of Timberline Secondary won a bronze medal for Electronics at the Skills Canada Provincial Competition in Abbotsford on April 20. The competition required Stewart to show his knowledge and skills in electronics through several hands-on tasks and accompanying theory questions. The major categories were bread boarding (prototyping) an electronic circuit, reverse engineering a project layout back to a schematic diagram using correct symbols, and building a complete project from a kit to showcase assembly and soldering skills. Stewart qualified for the provincial level competition at a regional competition held April 1 at the Timberline/NIC campus. This was Stewart’s first time competing and was also Timberline’s first time having a student reach the provincial level in electronics. The picture shows Stewart wearing his medal in his usual work area in the Timberline electronics lab. He is holding the breadboarded project and the soldered project from the competition.
