Outreach

This year, our chapter is starting an initiative to be more active in schools and to reach out to the younger generations with the goal of raising awareness as well as educating our future leaders about sustainable change. We run the “Water for the World” workshop for gr 9 and 10 students, which encompass an introduction to EWB and engineering, a short presentation on water becoming a global issue and an interactive activity that encourages critical thinking. Apart from raising awareness, we also hope that the students will be able to develop a deeper and more thorough understanding of engineering as they move into their upper years of high school and have to start thinking about post-secondary. If the students of today are passionate, knowledgeable and committed, we believe that they will be able to help ensure a sustainable tomorrow.

If you have a specific area of interest, do not hesitate to contact us about the idea.
