Sample of the Engineering Crest with the text

By participating in this event, they will be eligible for the engineering crest.

Engineering and geoscience are interdisciplinary fields. You can find engineers and geoscientists working together to solve many different challenges. Some examples of engineering disciplines that closely align with geoscience include:

  • civil engineering (bedrock and soil analysis, earthworks, foundation design)
  • environmental engineering (mine wastes, hydrogeology and water management, GIS mapping and analysis)
  • geological engineering (geohazards, mining)
  • geomatics engineering (remote sensing and satellite imagery of earth processes)
  • geotechnical engineering (geomechanics)

To receive an engineering crest, please indicate that your child is a girl guide or scout in the registration form. Crests will be mailed out to all eligible attendees following the event.
