Dear PEO Brampton Chapter Member,

March is National Engineering Month! 

Participating in education outreach programs is a fun way to be involved with your chapter and help grade school students, their parents and teachers understand what engineering is all about.

Saturday, March 2nd, 2019 is the Popsicle stick Bridge Building Challenge (BBC)

We are looking for volunteers to assist with the tasks required to make the BBC event a success. The BBC is an excellent opportunity to show elementary school students in grades 4 to 8 some of the fun, exciting and rewarding aspects of the engineering profession.
Volunteers can be involved a couple of times before the event as well.
Pre-test day - Saturday February 23rd, 2019, noon to 3 pm we will be testing our bridge busters and software at the school. Interested students have a chance to test out their prototype bridge creations on the bridge buster and talk to Professional Engineers about their designs.

This year we are setting up the equipment and tables on the Saturday morning March 2nd early 7 am before the kids come for registration. We will meet at 7:00 am to set-up at Bramalea Secondary School and review the event day tasks.

Please state your preferred task or any task:
