Member Learning


Member learning this week will be about global engineering. Global engineering is about bringing in social concepts to help young engineers tackle global issues happening around us. I have heard that this presentation is going to be “inspiring” so don’t miss it!. As always member learning will be in Agriculture 1e85 @ 6 pm this Thursday (Nov 17th).



School Outreach



We are still needing people for this Saturday! Come help out in any capacity!

Our chapter has been asked to present Water for the World workshops on Saturday the 19th at 10:00, 1:00, 2:00 and 3:15 (each one hour long) at Discover Engineering, a weekend event (on campus) to introduce middle school girls to engineering. If you have ever thought about helping with youth engagement/school outreach, now is a great time!

If you are interested and available to help at one of the above times,
fill in your availability on this doodle:

Bonus second school outreach opportunity!


We also have two Food for Thought workshops booked for Wednesday, November 23rd 9:30-10:30 and 10:30-11:30 in the engineering building. We will be presenting to grades 5 and 6 students who are visiting the U of S for a field trip. Please sign up with your availability at

Benefit Concert


Like music (of course!) ?
Like contributing to a good cause such as international development (who doesn’t!) ?
Perfect!

EWB will be holding a benefit concert on Sunday, November 20th. It will be located at Amigos and bands are arriving at 8 pm. Tickets will be $10 and are being sold at the door.  The money raised will be used to fund volunteers (Junior Fellows) to go to Africa to work on development projects next summer. Come out and invite your friends to see some great local bands (EWB’s own Payton Byrns will be playing as well).


 


ISSAC Global Village


On Friday, November 17th EWB will be part of the Global Village taking place in the International Students Centre in Lower Place Riel. EWB will be having a booth at the event from 12-4 pm, focusing on our chapter's work in Saskatoon and EWB's work in Canada to connect the Canadian public to Africa. Feel free to swing by and say hello! A lot of the other groups will have free food there.

If you would like to help by manning the EWB booth during the event email Bryce at blg068@mail.usask.ca or talk to him at the Member Learning!
