BSCN – UBC Geering Up Engineering Outreach, Vancouver, BC
I have been working as an Outreach Student Assistant with UBC Geering Up for my second co-op term. I work within the Outreach Division, which works specifically with Indigenous and rural communities to bring STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering Math) programming to both students and educators, year round. As an Outreach Student Assistant, I have been able to support with team logistics, curriculum development, and often times instruct. I have been able to develop new workshops based off of natural resource use and sustainability, and also lead workshops that were based behind Indigenous traditional knowledge.
