National Engineering Month NEM-Simcoe 2020
March 7 @ 9:00 am - 3:30 pm
National Engineering Month – Simcoe- Muskoka-Georgian Bay (NEM Simcoe) organizes annual events to celebrate Engineering.
Our main event is held in March; it includes competitions for students in grades 5 to 8 and demonstrations (for all age groups) .
The competitors are challenged on practical skills when they build & compete their projects. The Judges interview the participants on their project theoretical knowledge. Many of the competitors are meeting people who work in the field of science & technology for the first time. Having the event at Georgian College exposes the attendees to post-secondary education. We feel that the way we present Event Day aligns with NEM.
Past activities include Popsicle stick bridge, catapult, rubber-powered car competitions, demonstrations & coding of Raspeberry Pi, Arduino computers, radio and electric motor building, water treatment processes, robots, spaghetti structures , Tinker Lab LIVE where you can get wired with the Barrie Public Library pop-up activity station!, and many more…
