APEGA STEMester Program
APEGA STEMester is an exciting new school program that heightens the learning experience of Grade 10 students in the areas of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).
This semester-long program will connect students with professional engineers and geoscientists working in their industries. Students will explore a variety of fascinating careers by visiting industry workplaces, maker spaces, and postsecondary institutions. Students will finish the semester by designing a project that helps the greater community.
This unique opportunity takes students beyond traditional classroom learning and better prepares them for their future careers by completing hands-on projects, real-world problem solving, and industry-inspired workshops.
We are Looking for Partner Businesses
We are looking for members and permit holders interested in sharing their expertise by hosting a class of 25–30 students in grade 10. You can host for as little as a single day, or as long as an entire week.
