Branch Science Nights - Edmonton Branch Science Night (2023-2024)

 

The Opportunity

 

The APEGA Edmonton Branch is looking for enthusiastic volunteers interested in sharing their passion for engineering and geoscience in an evening of fun, hands-on activities and demonstrations for students, teachers and families. During the 2023-24 school year the APEGA Edmonton Branch will be hosting Science Nights each month at a different school in the Edmonton area. Volunteers can sign up for one or multiple Science Nights throughout the year. A pizza dinner and refreshments will be provided.

 

The Impact
