2020 National Engineering Month

Mar 1, 2020 - Mar 31, 2020

Throughout the Province of Nova Soctia


Adam Donaldson, PhD, P.Eng, National Engineering Month Committee Chair

Some might think it’s a bit early to be looking forward to March, but our committee is already hard at work pulling together plans for National Engineering Month 2020. We have some great new ideas for events and competitions this year, and are looking for more if there’s anyone who would like to volunteer and get involved! This year in particular, we are looking for our members from across the province to consider if they could help run events in their local communities, such as egg drop competitions or visits to local schools/groups to spread the word on how engineering is making an impact in your community. 

We hope to continue offering competitions for students of all ages, professional development opportunities for members, and networking events and workshops throughout the month. Here’s a bit of a sneak peak of what to expect on our calendar:

Events for members

  • 5th Annual Curling Funspiel (register early!)
  • Professional Development Sessions
  • Hockey Night in Halifax

Share your experiences with others

  • Student-Professional Social
  • Spotlight on Innovation (This has sold out repeatedly, don’t wait!)
  • Public Engineering Display at the Halifax Library
    • Public Displays on Engineering Activities in Nova Scotia (all ages)
    • On-site Competitions (all ages from elementary to high-school)

Meet our future engineers

  • Ritual of the Calling of an Engineer (Iron Ring)
  • Design Competitions at the Public Library
  • Dalhousie Engineering Design Expo (Late March/Early April)
  • Egg Drop Competitions

Stay tuned for the Spring Edition of The Engineer. It should arrive at your mailbox or inbox just before March. In the meantime, come up with a “punny” team name for you and your co-workers for the Curling Funspiel, prepare a poster about a project you worked on and let us know you can make the library event to show it off, or volunteer to help run an Egg Drop competition. See you in March 2020!
