Volunteer Opportunities

K-12 Classroom Expert

The APEGA Outreach Team is looking for enthusiastic volunteers interested in sharing their passion for engineering and geoscience with K-12 students. Volunteers will be asked to visit K-12 classrooms in their region or connect with classrooms virtually to act as subject matter experts. Specific topics will relate to the science or math curriculum students are learning in school, but will vary based on the requests that we receive. Successful applicants can be located anywhere in Alberta.
