The biggest (and best!) reason that we’re able to create thousands of positive engineering experiences for students is thanks to our community of passionate engineer volunteers.
EoT volunteers are talking to K-12 students across Canada about engineering in new ways.
EoT volunteers create inspiring engineering-themed play and learning opportunities for youth, especially girls and kids from racially diverse communities.
They become relatable role models and get kids excited to explore engineering through hands-on, creative learning experiences.
Dave Steeves – long time volunteer with the Engineer in Residence program – shares his personal experience and the reason he started volunteering (and what keeps him coming back each year!)
EoT volunteers love what they do! They’re a passionate community of engineers and they want to share that passion with other.
Particularly those that might not know what’s possible with a career in engineering.
As Engineer in Residence volunteers, they’re able to bring their experience into the classroom and connect the dots between curriculum and real world applications.
