Our annual Fall Open House at Waterloo is coming up on November 5 2016, and more details are available here. It’s a good opportunity for students in Grades 11 and 12 (and even younger) to have a look around, see displays, and talk to current students to find out what might be of interest in Engineering or other programs.
This year I’ll have to miss the Open House, since we’re travelling to New York and San Francisco to attend the NACAC STEM College Fairs on October 29 (NY) and November 6 (SF). Here’s a video about the one we attended in Houston in September (https://vimeo.com/184338009) which went very well. We’re looking forward to meeting some of our prospective applicants at these fairs. If anyone is in the NY or SF area and can’t make it to a fair but wants to meet and learn more about Waterloo, you can email us at email@example.com and we will try to set up something.
Also in NYC, we’ll be at a Waterloo event hosted by our friends at the company Venmo, who employ our alumni and co-op students. This mixer event is for New York area Waterloo alumni, co-op students, and prospective students & their families too. Space is limited, so if you’d like to attend and talk to various people about Waterloo you can get tickets at this link.
We’ll also be visiting a few select schools in NY and SF, where I’ll give some short lectures on math, physics and/or chemistry topics, and Engineering design examples.
