Curriculum Involvement

We have partnered with faculty across Canada to introduce real-life global poverty case studies, examples, and readings into the engineering curriculum during GE Week, ranging from electrical communications systems to entrepreneurship to engineering design. In 2018 we impacted 2,500 students in the classroom alone.

Open Data
Challenge

The GE Week Open Data Challenge aims to provide university students in Canada an opportunity to apply their problem solving skills, business and technical knowledge, and innovative thinking to develop a product or solution that addresses global social impact issues by leveraging open data.
