3D printing

Maggie Le Mesurier instructed a 3D printing workshop yesterday at the Fort Frances Public Library Technology Centre, which taught participants the basics of 3D printing. Those who complete the 3D orientation workshop can then use the 3D printer to create small objects such as whistles and dice, so larger, more complicated designs. The FFPLTC will be holding a 3D printing presentation on Aug.

Coding camp

The Science North “Bluecoats" were back in town yesterday and this time they brought something new and exciting: robots! The "Robots en Route" workshop, hosted by the Fort Frances Public Library Technology Centre, showed the group of kids on hand a basic form of designing, building, and programming robotics using an "ez-robot" builder platform.

Petting goat

A friendly goat reached out to greet Parker Godin, who was excited to pet the farm animals at the Spry Farm petting zoo Saturday afternoon in conjunction with the Fort Frances Canadian Bass Championship. The youngster, and many others who stopped by, were greeted by goats, miniature horses, and chickens.

Hairstyling program hoping to ease local demand

A new program offered through the Seven Generations Education Institute here is hoping to ease the current high demand of hairstylists in the Fort Frances area.

The Hairstyling Diploma offered through SGEI's satellite campus on King's Highway, in partnership with Sault College, took a new intake of students for its inaugural program back in September.

Playground battle

Theo Faragher, left, and Carter Daniw laughed as they had a sword fight with pool noodles yesterday morning at the McIrvine Rotary Park during a “Drop-in Playtime" program hosted by the Fort Frances "Best Start” Hub. The program provides a space, as well as toys and activities, for kids and families to bond and have fun throughout the summer.

Quest duet (2018)

Socorro Galusha, left, and Ericka Tymkin belted out some harmony to Soulshine Quintet's “Son of a Preacher Man" on Friday night during "Quest for the Best." Their performance had everything, right down to the co-ordination of their outfits (although they say it wasn't planned), and it paid off as the pair were given the "Showstopper” award.

Battle Song (2018)

The “Battle Song" at this year's "Quest for the Best" on Friday night got up close and personal as Dylan Ossachuk and Kelly Clark gave it their all in an attempt to "out-sing" each other to Bon Jovi's "Livin' on a Prayer.” Both singers were described by the judges as having strong voices and personalities, as well as having great stage presence.
