APEGA actively participates in the sustainability of the engineering and geoscience professions by engaging with children and young adults to spark and nurture their curiosity in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) with a specific focus on the engineering and geoscience fields. These will be the next generation of professional engineers and geoscientists who will be critical to Alberta’s economy.
KINDERGARTEN TO GRADE 12
Encouraging children to consider engineering or geoscience as a profession means talking to them early and often. Our Outreach Department holds hands- on, engaging events showing how exciting and inspiring a STEM career can be.
We’re especially proud of our APEGA Science Olympics, which are held across the province. These engage more than 1,800 students, and many have almost 50 per cent female participation.

“I forgot howmuch I enjoyed science and why I got into engineering in the first place. Teaching the kids and seeing their enthusiasm to teach
their friends was inspiring.” — Jill H., P.Eng., Science Olympics volunteer
