Engineering and Geoscience Week 2019
For Engineering and Geoscience Week 2019, APEGS gave the movie Dream Big: Engineering Our World with an educator guide to every school in Saskatchewan.
Teachers can also access the movie and lesson plans at ROVER, the Ministry of Education's Recommended Online Video Educational Resources, by logging in here and see how it fits with the curriculum for each grade.
Engineering and Geoscience Week 2020
March 1 to 7, 2020
In celebration of Engineering and Geoscience Week, APEGS once again brought an exciting learning opportunity to Saskatchewan students. APEGS partnered with the Saskatchewan Geological Society to create and introduce GeoExplore Saskatchewan, a digital version of the 2002 Geological Highway Map of Saskatchewan.
On March 3 and 4, APEGS and the society introduced the map to Regina and area students at the annual Saskatchewan Geological Society school lecture as a demonstration and a hands on learning experience for students.
Presentation on GeoExplore:
What is engineering and geoscience?
Engineering is the use of scientific principles to design and build machines, structures, and other items, including bridges, tunnels, roads, vehicles, and buildings.
Geoscience is the study of earth systems and how they interact, including solid earth, oceans and atmosphere.
What do engineers and geoscientists do?
Engineers and geoscientists use the principles of science to turn ideas into reality. They are involved in every facet of our daily lives…the cars we drive, the roads we travel, the houses we live in, the natural resources we use, the environment we affect, and the communication networks that connect us to the world.
Professional engineers share in a heritage that spans more than 4,000 years, from the great pyramids of Egypt to today. Professional geoscientists have inherited a curiosity about our planet – its fossils, gems, minerals, and geologic phenomena – that goes back more than 2,300 years.
Today, we depend on engineers and geoscientists to build safety into our homes, schools, offices, factories, and mines. To ensure we have clean drinking water on tap, efficient treatment of wastewater, and electricity at the flick of a switch. To find new sources of oil, gas, and water. To improve our quality of life and enhance our range of opportunities, all while protecting the environment.
