STEMFest - Youth Engagement

Nov 6, 2018 - Nov 10, 2018

Halifax Convention Centre

Increase understanding of engineering among 600 Grade 7 and 8 students from across the province on November 6-9th at the Halifax Convention Centre. 

 

The Department of Education and Early Childhood Development is supporting the participation of students from across the province to attend STEMFest. Join Engineers Nova Scotia to provide a hands-on learning opportunity during the day, all supplies and instructions are provided. Note: Friday, November 9th at 8:30 requires volunteers be fluent in French. Please volunteer for these opportunities by selecting the timeslots that work for your schedule. 

 

During the evenings we are looking for a few professionals who are willing to have dinner with students and teachers to share their experiences working as engineers and work with the youth to solve a table-top problem over dinner. Evening participants will also watch the movie, Dream Big with the youth. This is an awesome movie about engineering, you don't want to miss it*. If you are interested, let Rosalie@engineersnovascotia.ca know. 

 

*Dream Big is now available on Netflix!
