One of the important mandates of PEO chapters is to help youth develop an understanding and appreciation for the profession of engineering. We currently have many events held annually to support this goal.


Bridge Breaking

The Bridge Breaking Challenge is an annual event organized and supported through Adopt-a-Scientist and the Lambton Chapter. It has been running for over 12 years and culminates with the best bridges from each school being tested at the Lambton Mall.


Discovery Day

Discovery Day is an annual event held at Lambton Mall where children can discover interesting science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) activities organized by the Lambton PEO Chapter and also by local companies. Each group organizes a booth with a fun task for children to get a passport stamp. 


Engineering Scholarships

Each year, the Lambton chapter of the PEO offers scholarships for students starting studies in engineering.

GoEngGirl

GoEngGirl is a free event held annually across the country for girls in grades 7-10 and one parent/guardian to explore engineering through the eyes of female professionals, academics, and students. Since 2017, Lambton PEO has paired with Western University to bring the event to Sarnia.


Impromptu / High School Challenge

This event challenges high school students to test their knowledge of math and science as well as their creativity and teamwork in order to create a solution to a problem they only hear about that morning! 


Mathletics

 

Typically held during National Engineering Month, Mathletics is a mathematics competition for students in grades 5 through 8, which helps them understand real-life applications of math concepts. 2017 will be the 5th year for the competition in Lambton County.
