CALL for VOLUNTEERS

We’re looking for engineer mentors to talk to kids about engineering.

Professional engineering and engineering students from across Canada are welcome!

The program runs September – June. You’ll be matched with a K-12 classroom educator for the duration of the school year. Visits happen once per month (each visit is about an hour).

There is also an onboarding/training program – each week in July you’ll be invited to join a 30 – 45 minute live webinar (there are 4 modules in total).
