March is National Engineering and Geoscience Month

Taking place in March, National Engineering and Geoscience Month (NEGM) is an annual initiative to raise awareness about the important role the professions play in society. NEGM highlights the various academic and career opportunities in engineering and geoscience available to young Canadians.

Across the province, APEGBC’s regional branches will educate and inspire young minds to think about how engineering and geoscience touches their lives by hosting events and activities as a part of NEGM. Popsicle stick bridge building competitions and rock and mineral workshops are some of the most popular events held around BC and allow children to explore how creativity and science can be combined to solve real world problems—the very essence of what professional engineers and geoscientists do every day.

In addition to supporting these events and activities, APEGBC is proud to be encouraging this initiative through published features in local and regional newspapers to raise awareness of our professional members and highlight their accomplishments. Throughout the month of March, editorial features will run in the Vancouver Sun, the Victoria Times Colonist, the Kelowna Daily Courier, the Prince George Free Press and the Alaska Highway News; in addition, radio ads will run on CKNW AM980 and The Beat 94.5 FM to inform the public of upcoming events.
