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 initiative is an opportunity to highlight the ways engineering and geoscience build our communities and our economy, and a chance to encourage kids of all ages to explore the dynamic career opportunities in these professions. This year, we’re focusing our messaging on the particular importance of engaging girls and young women, and our ongoing efforts to achieve 30x30.
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.
In celebration of NEGM, Engineers and Geoscientists BC branches have organized events at different locations across BC. Find out which events are happening in your community.
