  • Put your creativity and talent to good use
  • Develop and acquire new skills

AMBASSADOR ACTIVITIES

CLASS VISITS WITHOUT A SCIENCE ACTIVITY

CLASS VISITS WITH A SCIENCE ACTIVITY

HOST AN OIQ STAND

CEGEP visits

You will co-host an activity with a university student on a theme that interests and excites you both, in which you can highlight the benefits of studying engineering at university.

COMPANY VISITS

You can make a difference in the career choices of students by giving them a first-hand experience of an authentic working environment. Introduce your working environment (construction site, plant, etc.) to a group of young people and show them how engineering can change the world!

JUDGES FOR SCIENCE COMPETITIONS

We are asked several times a year by science competition organizers if we can help them find judges to determine the winners of a science-related challenge. Do you have experience in more than one field of engineering? This is a perfect activity for you to get involved in.

SCIENCE PROJECT ASSISTANCE

Assist a group of young people who are participating in a science competition and have to develop, design and produce whatever their science project requires. These are tasks that require a number of skills, including relationship management, teamwork, problem-solving, etc. Engineers need all of these skills to be able to do their work well!
