We appreciate the desire to give your child or student the best foundation in life, particularly if they show an interest in Science, Technology, Engineering and/or Maths (often referred to as STEM). That’s why we’ve curated a list of our favourite resources to take that love of creating and problem solving one step further.
This initiative pairs professional engineers with their local elementary or high school. Working closely with the teacher, engineers develop a program of activities to support curriculum learning in engaging and novel ways. Students gain exposure to an engineering role model and come away with a better understanding of what engineering actually is!
Watch this video about the program.
Forms, Program Guide, and other EIR related resources can be found on the EIR Resources Page.
