Volunteers needed for the
Engineer-in-Residence (EIR) program
Are you ready to inspire the next generation of engineers?
Do you have an interest in creating positive engineering experiences for kids?
Consider volunteering for the Engineer-in-Residence (EIR) program!
What is the Engineer-in-Residence (EIR) program?
The EIR program is an engineering outreach program. It matches P.Eng.s and EITs with a high school or elementary school in their community. The volunteer EIR help teachers bring a real-life dimension to the curriculum through hands-on projects, presentations and other activities inside and outside of the classroom.
And we’ve got you covered for activity ideas and resources developed from some world-class research on how to deliver the best STEM outreach! Bring engineering to LIFE for kids, share your engineering story and help them understand what it means to be an engineer.
What does an EIR volunteer do?
EIR volunteers visit their school’s classroom during the school year (September – June) approximately once per month during school hours. Please visit the Engineer-in-Residence website www.eir.ca for more information and to apply.
How much of my time does it take to be an EIR volunteer?
Contribute a few hours a month throughout the school year (September – June).
Deadline for applications
Please apply on the EIR website before May 31st!
