National Engineering and Geoscience Month (NEGM)
National Engineering and Geoscience Month (NEGM) kicks off on March 1, 2018. The month-long event promotes awareness of engineering and geoscience, celebrates our members and their achievements, explains the diverse fields within the professions, and reminds the public of the relevance and importance of engineering and geoscience to every day life.
During the month, Engineers and Geoscientists BC and our branches around the province organised family-oriented events such as Engineering and Geoscience Fest, Popsicle Stick Bridge Building contests, Science Games, and Dig Day.
Stay tuned for more events.
The 2017 NEGM Drawing Contest asked children, ages 4 to 12, to think like a geoscientist or engineer and draw a picture of an invention that would make a difference in someone's life (e.g., robotic arm or leg, clean drinking water, extract minerals and gases safely from the earth, etc.)
This year 150 entries were received from students around the province.
The 2018 NEGM Drawing contest will be posted on March 1, 2018.
