About us

Engineers of Tomorrow is a not-for-profit that is shaping the engineering narrative by telling better stories. 

Real stories from the classroom: Bringing STEM to life!

Long time EIR program volunteer, David Steeves is helping to make the science curriculum real for elementary students.

As featured in this article (see below) in the Toronto Star, Dave talks about his own motivations for giving back and volunteering with the Engineer in Residence program….those teachers that took an interest in him and his “tinkering” and encouraged him to pursue an engineering path.

The difference that made in his life has stayed with him and now he’s returning the favour for students today.

Engineers are often accused of being notoriously “bad” at communication, but Dave shows us that it’s just not the case.

Through storytelling, classroom discussion and fun, hands-on activities, Dave is able to keep the attention of 13 & 14 year old students.

Dave is truly the “resident” engineer in the classroom and is helping students see engineering in new an exciting ways.
