National Engineering & Geoscience Week

about NEGW


National Engineering & Geoscience Week (NEGW) is an annual opportunity to highlight not just engineering and geoscience, but science, math and technology.

Initiated by Engineers Canada as a means of raising awareness of the important role engineering plays in the lives of Canadians, NEGW celebrates engineering and geoscience achievements and highlights the various academic and career opportunities available to Canadians.

Along with other Canadian provincial and territorial associations, APEGGA hosts events and activities for elementary, junior and senior high school students to discover the exciting worlds of science and math. Through a mix of hands-on activities for students and newspaper supplements in Alberta's two largest daily papers, APEGGA seeks to raise the profile of its Professional Members and highlight their accomplishments.

National Engineering & Geoscience Week is filled with opportunities to share math and science among our nation's youth and general public.

Professionals across the country can:

visit grade school and high school classrooms

share hands-on activities

sponsor a banquet

participate in the Future City Competition

organize a public tour of interesting local engineering/geoscience projects

sponsor an engineering/geoscience day at the local library or museum

develop an engineering/geoscience-based contest

hold an open house, provide tours of facilities, such as labs or plants

Each year, Professionals, students, teachers, government and business leaders across the country take part in this worthy event created to foster an appreciation for engineers' and geoscientists' positive contributions to society.
