The Community in his Classroom

Simon Trussler and DPM Solutions were profiled in the Bridgewater Bulletin by award-winning journalist Stacey Colwell. The article highlighted DPM’s community outreach and profiled Simon’s involvement with Bridgewater High School’s student Co-op program.

Simon Trussler with Co-op student Ian Benjamin. Ian went on to earn a degree in Mechanical Engineering from Dalhousie University.

Simon gives him the best co-op experience we could have asked for. I know it’s been beneficial to Simon as well. We want businesses in the community to know co-op is not a one-way thing…where this can be great for the student…it can be a really great partnership and we know theses one of those situations…Through research we’ve found how students learn best through hands-on, by getting up and doing. So instead of them learning about different businesses in a classroom setting, why not get they out working with them?
