Go ENG Girl 2017

2017 was the first year the Lambton chapter of the PEO was able to team up with Western University to bring Go ENG Girl to Sarnia. The event hosted 47 girls in grades 7 through 10 at Great Lakes Secondary School to learn about the wonderful world of engineering: "A Caring Profession." 

The chapter would like to thank Western University for all of their help facilitating this event and bringing it to one of the few non-university cities.

We would also like to thank all of the volunteers that made it possible.
