OSPE - The Voice - Spring 2014 - (Page 8)

UP FRONT CELEBRATING THE PROFESSION NATIONAL ENGINEERING MONTH IN ONTARIO What do engineers do? They build bridges, don't they? All too often that is where the public imagination ends. OSPE is committed to showing the public that engineers do so much more. Each year, National Engineering Month (NEM) Ontario provides the platform to show our fellow citizens that engineers improve lives and enable change in exciting, ground breaking ways every day. 8 TheVoice Spring 2014 Established by Engineers Canada in 1992, National Engineering Month (NEM) is a Canada-wide celebration designed to energize engineering professionals, educate the public and inspire the next generation to see that engineering and engineering technology are about more than building bridges - they can help change the world. Throughout March 2014, NEM Ontario featured a wide array of volunteer-led events and activities, many of which were free of charge, highlighting the wonders of engineering and engineering technology in virtually every discipline and sector. From professional lectures to fun hands-on youth activities; from classroom visits to awareness-building public outreach, NEM Ontario activities shone a spotlight on engineering as an essential part of building communities and leading change. OSPE was proud to play a key role in presenting NEM Ontario 2014, including our second annual Engineering Night with the Toronto Raptors at Air Canada Centre. Throughout March, OSPE was on the road, hosting events at the Canada Science and Technology Museum in Ottawa, Science North in Sudbury and the famed CN Tower in downtown Toronto. For the fourth consecutive year, OSPE also partnered with the Engineering Student Societies Council of Ontario (ESSCO) to host a spectacular Purple Power event at the CN Tower. An incredible, collaborative Rube Goldberg Machine, built by engineering school teams across Ontario, spanned the province, connected via the Internet. The machine's final action flipped a switch to light the Tower purple - a colour traditionally associated with the stamp of a professional engineer. At OSPE, celebrating and showcasing engineers and the engineering profession is a top priority. We are committed to showing Ontarians that engineers are daring thinkers who address the critical challenges facing our world. Many thanks to our sponsors and volunteers for making NEM Ontario 2014 an outstanding success. NEM Ontario is a continued collaboration between Engineers Without Borders (EWB), the Ontario Association of Certified Engineering Technicians and Technologists (OACETT) and Professional Engineers Ontario (PEO).
