The APEGBC Tri-City Branch is hosting a Popsicle Stick Bridge Building Competition in Coquitlam as part of National Engineering and Geoscience Month 2017. Join us for an informative, fun-filled event aimed at promoting engineering and geoscience in our community and especially to the youth.

This event is part of National Engineering and Geoscience Month (NEGM); an annual celebration of engineering and geoscience across Canada. The goal of this event is to promote the awareness of the engineering and geoscience professions, showcase career choices, and the many ways in which engineering and geoscience relate to our everyday life.
