As the first week of National Engineering Month wraps up, we thought we’d share what we’d been up to.
Well, we’re kinda proud of this work.
AND….we’re hoping it’ll inspire YOU to get involved in some way. Take action & share your engineering story with someone this month!
It’s been a pretty exciting week!
Over the last few days we’ve connected almost 100 (!!) volunteers. Engineers, and people that identify with the engineering community in some way (engineering students, EITs, people working in STEM roles….you get the idea!) will be sharing their stories with +1000 kids across Canada!
These volunteers will be virutal mentors for students over the next few months as they research, design, and build Future City models.
Future City starts with a question—how can we make the world a better place? To answer it, 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students imagine, research, design, and build cities of the future that showcase their solution to a citywide sustainability issue. Past topics include stormwater management, urban agriculture, public spaces, and green energy. The 2020-2021 theme is Living on the Moon. Teams will design a futuristic lunar city and provide examples of how the city uses two Moon resources to keep its residents safe and healthy.
We’re working with Engineers Canada to make this nation-wide program a sucess.
This year, more than EVER before kids need a way to connect with a brighter future. The Future City Experience can do that for them.
Stay tuned as we amplify Future City stories over the coming weeks & months.
