The Engineers-in-Residence (EIR) program is PEO's flagship outreach program. It matches P.Engs and EITs with a high school or elementary school in their community. The volunteer EIR helps teachers bring a real-life dimension to the curriculum through hands-on projects, presentations and other activities inside and outside of the classroom.
EIR volunteers visit their school’s classroom during the school year (September – June) approximately once per month during school hours. The time requirement is flexible and is arranged between the engineer and the school contact.
