"Engineering help keeps the world safe and the water clean"

– Feedback from “This is Technology Too!” event with Google Shop – Heartland Best Buy, Mississauga, ON (Fall 2017)

Since engineering isn’t a subject traditionally taught in schools, many have a difficult time understanding what it is. That’s why we believe in the value of creating positive engineering experiences for young minds. In doing so, we plant the idea that there’s a place for everyone in engineering.

We have found that this approach also has an impact on the professionals delivering outreach activities – they reconnect with their engineering stories, rediscovering their passion for engineering.

We’ve had a lot of success over the years, but some of our highlights are outlined below:

Children's writing

"I learned that an engineer doesn't have to be a "nerd" it has to be a person who wants to learn they don't have to be a prodigy and a genius they just have to be willing to learn."
