How It Works

Our Engineer-in-Residence program is fueled by the unique experiences of our volunteer engineers. With their diverse backgrounds and areas of expertise, they bring a wealth of knowledge to the classroom. We also recognize that every classroom is unique, and each teacher will want to highlight different areas of the curriculum in order to enhance the learning process. Accordingly, every teacher/EIR pair works together to design each visit to meet the needs of their classroom. This is how the process works:

  1. Teachers and EIRs apply online.
  2. We interview EIRs to help match them with an appropriate school.
  3. Each Teacher is matched with an EIR in their geographical area.
  4. Each Teacher meets with their EIR to create a plan for visits.
  5. A live orientation session is held for both Teachers and EIRs.
  6. The fun begins in the classroom!

The EIR program is offered free of charge to schools across Ontario.
