What is Geering Up?
UBC Geering Up Engineering Outreach is a non-profit organization with the mandate of promoting science, engineering, and technology to youth across British Columbia. Affiliated with the University of British Columbia, Geering Up is designed, organized and operated by UBC students. We endeavor to show program participants how fun, exciting and useful engineering and science can be.
We hope to provide all of the children and youth of British Columbia with the opportunity to investigate engineering, science, and technology in a fun, educational and safe environment.
We are dedicated to promoting science, engineering and technology to the children and youth of British Columbia through fun, innovative and hands-on experiments and projects. We strive to reach all children and youth, regardless of gender, ethnicity, culture or socio-economic status, with special outreach for groups that are traditionally underrepresented in the sciences. We aim to provide valuable work experience to our employees, and enrich the University and community.
