DAWEG will be a part of this year's EG-Fest. To Volunteer please contact daweg.volunteer@gmail.com

EG-Fest is a one-day event (trade show style) put on by engineering and geoscience professionals and companies taking place during National Engineering and Geoscience Month. It's a great opportunity for people in our community to see first-hand how the many facets of engineering and geoscience affect our everyday lives. The main goal of EG-Fest is to extend public knowledge and appreciation of engineering and geoscience. Each year, several thousand people pass through the VPL promenade to visit the many booths, demonstrations, and exhibits as well as to speak with the representatives to learn about our profession.

This year we are doing something new. DAWEG is continuously looking for ways to promote women in all the corners of our field and this year we have decided to invite an inspiring organization, with female members to be featured at our booth. We have invited UBC Biomedical Engineering Student Team (BEST) this year; Their organization is comprised of 80 students, 40 of whom are female! They will be working side by side with our volunteers and will be speaking about their projects, successes and how their diversity has helped them along the way.
