National Engineering & Geoscience Week (NEGW) is an annual
opportunity to highlight not just engineering and geoscience, but
science, math and technology.
Initiated by the Canadian Council of Professional Engineers (CCPE)
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 will host over 500 events and activities in to help
elementary, junior and senior high school students 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 has sought 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
Professionals across the country can:
grade school and high school classrooms
in the Future City Competition
a public tour of interesting local engineering/geoscience projects
an engineering/geoscience day at the local library or museum
an engineering/geoscience-based contest
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.
