An innovative, volunteer-based program dedicated to inspiring young people in the areas of science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
The EIR program is offered free of charge to schools across Ontario.
Applications for the 2020/2021 program year are now closed! Please contact us at [email protected] with any questions.
Call for volunteers: Regional Chair
As the EIR program continues on its growth trajectory to reach more students across Ontario we need your help!
We’re looking for regional representation across Ontario (which may or may not be aligned with current PEO Chapters).
These “Regional Chairs/Co-Chairs” would be helping to connect EIRs in Ontario to facilitate:
- Sharing of best practices in the classroom (virtual or in-school)
- Access to virtual resources such as teaching aids
- Providing a regular communication with fellow EIRs across the province
- Assistance in matching of available EIRs and Schools (local knowledge helps in matching; with the virtual environment, this is no longer a requirement, but after COVID, it could become an advantage again)
When we have enhanced regional support in place for the EIR program, the experience for the volunteer, teacher and students is even better!
The EIR Program goes VIRTUAL!
The EIR program now has the ability to connect with your class virtually. We'll keep striving to create positive engineering experiences for students, teacher & engineers. Even during a global pandemic! In fact, we believe it's more important than ever to show the next generation just want's possible with engineering!
