Become an EIR School

By completing this application, you are registering to become an EIR School. The EIR Program Office will use the information you provide to match your school with one of our volunteer engineers. Volunteer engineers and their teacher partners are asked to attend a 1-day orientation session in October. You will receive more information about this once you have been matched with an engineer. All EIRs are asked to undergo a police check. If we are not able to match you with an engineer, you will be placed on a first-come, first-served waiting list for the program.

Grade 7 and 8 teachers, you have the option of signing up for the 2015/16 school year WEMADEIT pilot program where your EIR will help you deliver fun and hands-on engineering lessons that fit directly into the Ontario STEM curriculum. You and your EIR will also receive additional support from the WEMADEIT team and have the chance to win a field trip to the Ontario Science Centre. If you’re interested, check the WEMADEIT box in the form!
