National Engineering and Geoscience Month kicks off on February 23rd, 2019. In lieu of, NAPEG will be hosting a couple events here in Yellowknife to help promote Engineering and Geoscience among our Youth.
The first event we are hosting is a Coding Event for Kids on Saturday, February 23, 2019 for Ages 5+. Contact Chelsea at 867-920-4055 to sign up! The coding event consists of 1 hour-long workshops on laptops, for the kids to attend and get some hands-on experience coding their very own games and characters. For the younger kids, in conjunction with the Coding Event, we will have a coloring table set up, for ages 2+. There will be fun, promotional gifts to give away and draws to be entered!
Both events will be on Saturday, February 23, 2019 from 10am till 2pm. Location to be determined.
In the New Year, we will post another notice with more information.
Please note, the Coding Workshops are on a first come first serve basis, and each workshop is an hour long. Laptops will be provided.
To continue the spirit of Engineering and Geoscience Month, we will be hosting our 18th Annual Bridge Building Competition on Saturday, March 2rd, 2019 from 10am till 2 pm. The location is still to be determined. We welcome you to come on out and watch the bridges get tested!
