National Engineering and Geoscience Month (NEGM)

National Engineering and Geoscience Month (NEGM) kicks off on March 1, 2019. Join in the excitement as engineer and geoscientist volunteers host community events that aim to inspire youth about science. This month-long celebration promotes awareness of the professions, highlights career choices in these fields, and reminds the public of the many ways in which engineering and geoscience keep the public safe.

Throughout March, Engineers and Geoscientists BC invites you and your family to participate in local community events that teach kids about science principles in a fun and educational way. Events include the Engineers and Geoscientists BC Science Games, Dig Day at the Britannia Mine Museum, popsicle stick bridge building competitions, and many other activities around BC.

We are also launching an advertising campaign that promotes engineering and geoscience professions to families through fun "Did You Know" facts. The ads can be found in The Vancouver Sun's newspaper—print and online—throughout March.

Considering a career in engineering and geoscience opens up a world of possibilities for students in BC, and across Canada. Join us as we celebrate science, exploration, and discovery all month long.
