VP External: Sometimes we try to be helpful

Update number 3 of the term!

I’ll be giving a quick overview of what’s been happening/what’s coming up in our outreach portfolio. We’ve continued with the usual initiatives; just this past weekend we had our trip to THEMUSEUM in Kitchener that we do twice a term. Kids learned things about engineering, and everybody had a good time. If you’re interested in doing science with kids, keep an eye out for that event in future terms.

In a couple weeks we have a rather important weekend coming up in that portfolio – Pride and Canada Day! Every year EngSoc puts together a float and marches in the Toronto Pride Parade. Tickets are on sale now! If you’d like to participate, drop by bit.ly/engpride. We also participate in UWaterloo’s Canada Day event; we set up a booth all day and play some fun mini games with the children that show up. We need volunteers! So if you’re interested, check out bit.ly/canadeng (yes, we like bitlinks). Both events will be a ton of fun and I highly recommend.

We will also soon be choosing a charity for the coming year! All of our proceeds throughout the year go to a charity that is voted on by the student body. Soon we’ll have nominations, and then a vote. So if there’s a charity that you feel is particularly deserving, keep an eye  out for nominations.

As always, send me a message if you have any questions!
