Engineering and Geoscience Week coincides with National Engineering and Geoscience Month, Canada’s biggest celebration of engineering and geoscience.
Dream Big for Engineering and Geoscience Week
Engineering and Geoscience Week in Saskatchewan was from March 3 - March 9, 2019.
APEGS gave a DVD of Dream Big: Engineering Our World with an educator guide to every school in Saskatchewan so that all students can learn more about engineering right in the classroom.
Dream Big, narrated by Academy Award® winner Jeff Bridges, transforms how people think about engineering. From the Great Wall of China and the world’s tallest buildings, to underwater robots, solar cars and smart, sustainable cities, Dream Big celebrates the human ingenuity behind engineering marvels big and small, and reveals the heart that drives engineers to create better lives for people around the world.

Dream Big Movie Showing
APEGS sent a letter and the Dream Big FAQ (frequently asked questions) to education centres in early December about Dream Big requesting a list of schools interested in having an engineering or geoscience professional introduce the show with a contest and prizes.
Thank you to the 100 schools that expressed interest by the January 31, 2019 deadline.
To see how the movie and educational resources fit with the Saskatchewan curriculum for each grade, schools can check out ROVER, the Ministry of Education’s video streaming service), at https://rover.edonline.sk.ca/en/rover/videos/2804.
Thank you, volunteers, for helping APEGS dream bigger!
Almost 300 engineering and geoscience professionals volunteered to introduce Dream Big: Engineering Our World at a school during Engineering and Geoscience Week. Thank you to all those who signed up and to those we were able to match with a school to introduce the movie.
