Request an EIR
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.
If you teach Grade 7 or 8, you have the option of signing up for the WEMADEIT pilot program for the 2015 – 2016 school year. In addition to performing the normal duties of an EIR, your EIR will deliver special engineering lessons made for students by students. You and your EIR match will also receive additional support from the WEMADEIT team throughout your school year. There is a nominal fee required to participate in the WEMADEIT program. If you’re interested, or would like more information, please check the WEMADEIT box below.
