Dear PEO Brampton Chapter Member,

Participating in education outreach programs is a fun way to be involved with your chapter and help grade school students, their parents and teachers understand what engineering is all about.

Saturday, April 22nd, 2023 is the Popsicle stick Bridge Building Challenge (BBC)

We are looking for volunteers to assist with the tasks required to make the BBC event a success. The BBC is an excellent opportunity to show elementary school students in grades 4 to 8 some of the fun, exciting and rewarding aspects of the engineering profession.
Volunteers can be involved a couple of times before the event as well.

Pre-test day - Sunday, April 16, 2023, 1:30 pm to 4 pm at Loafers Lake Recreation Centre (30 Loafers Lake Ln, Brampton, ON L6Z 1X9)

We will be testing our bridge busters and software at the school. Interested students have a chance to test out their prototype bridge creations on the bridge buster and talk to Professional Engineers about their designs.

This year we are setting up the equipment and tables early on Saturday, April 22nd at 8 am before the kids come for registration.

Event:              Popsicle stick Bridge Building Challenge
Date:               Saturday, April 22, 2023
Time:               8:00 AM to 4:00 PM
Location:         St. Michael Catholic Secondary School
                       9130 Columbia Way,
                       Bolton, ON

Volunteers are needed to help with:

  • Dry run and equipment testing
  • Set-up at the school the night before
  • Help during the BBC event

Please state your preferred task or any task: 

  • Student registration and student flow
  • Bridge qualification, judging, testing, scoring
  • IT, audio-visual equipment, games, quizzes, videos, guest speakers
  • Any Task
This is a great networking opportunity for EITs and engineers within our Chapter and a way to bring awareness and knowledge of the engineering profession to the public.

The Government of Ontario mandates that volunteers receive occupational health and safety and accessibility training. The intent of the training is to educate PEO volunteers on their rights and responsibilities as volunteers, as well as their duties when working in a volunteer capacity, so that they may perform their work safely and in compliance with the law.

In order to become a volunteer, you must
  • Sign the Confidentiality Agreement and the NEW Code of Conduct for Volunteers (which will also be provided to you at your orientation).
  • Take the three training modules provided by PEO.
  • Email your certificates and signed copies of the agreements to volunteering@peo.on.ca and cc BBC@peobrampton.com.
