Volunteer Opportunities
Future City Experience - Multiple Positions in English and French
The Future City Experience challenges students in grades 6, 7, and 8 across Canada to use the engineering design process to research, design, and build a model of a city 100 years into the future. Students in this year's challenge are to design a lunar city and provide examples of how the city uses two moon resources to keep its residents safe and healthy. Volunteers are needed to serve as a mentor to participants as they work through their build. For full information about this opportunity, see the call for volunteers.
Investigating Sustainable Engineering Practices and Mindsets Project
As part of a project investigating sustainable engineering practices and mindsets, researchers at the University of Prince Edward Island are seeking to interview professional engineers regarding their perceptions and professional activities concerning sustainability. The goal of this research is twofold. First, to inform public policy and engineering practice regarding current sustainability practices. Second, to develop new methods and processes for supporting sustainable engineering practices via an interdisciplinary approach. Participation is not limited to engineers whose practise relates directly to sustainability, all professional engineers are welcome. If you are interested in participating, please see the call for participants for full details. Further questions about the project should be directed to principal investigators Dr. Grant McSorley or Dr. Amy Hsiao.
