Resources for Educators

Turn the Ideas of Today into the Realities of Tomorrow

This booklet describes the various disciplines / careers available in engineering and geoscience. An excellent guide for students who are thinking engineering or geoscience may be the career for them but they are not quite sure what discipline to pursue.

This document is available at the APEGS office or can be downloaded here.  Turn the ideas of today into the realities of tomorrow

Videos

As part of its ongoing effort to encourage young people to pursue science and math education and explore careers in engineering and geosciences, the APEGS K-12 Committee launched the Student Video Program. The committee has been working with high school students to produce videos that highlight career opportunities available in engineering and geosciences.

A Closer Look at Professional Engineers and Geoscientists


 

Water Systems on Earth - Dam Effects

This resource is intended for teachers in Saskatchewan Grade 8 Science and aligns to the curriculum expectations in the Saskatchewan Curriculum Grade 8. The resource has been developed to complement the Grade 8 Earth and Space Science : Water Systems on Earth unit. In Dam Effects, students will use a hybrid of Problem Based Learning and Interrupted Case Study to solve the problem of whether or not a dam should be built in a specific location in Saskatchewan.
