Subject line: Soil Rocks Student Video Competition – This Year Accepting Homeschoolers!
Dear homeschooling parents/students,
Are you looking for ways as homeschoolers to engage with applied science topics this year? We would like to make you aware of the following video competition for students in Saskatchewan.
The Regina Geotechnical Group (RGG) in partnership with Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of Saskatchewan (APEGS), invites all students currently registered in any primary or secondary school (including homeschoolers), college, technical institute, or university in Saskatchewan to participate in the Soil Rocks Video Competition. Students can participate as individuals or groups. The goal is to have some fun while raising awareness and interest in the field of geotechnical engineering. (You can learn more about geotechnical engineering at the following website http://www.whatisgeotech.org/.)
The Soil Rocks Video Competition requires students to submit engaging videos related to the field of geotechnical (soil and rock) engineering. The videos will be judged by age category, and cash prizes awarded for the top-judged video in each category. This year’s post-secondary prize is $1000! This year’s judges are looking for a strong hands-on component to the videos (e.g. experiments, visual aids, interviews, artistry, etc.). Some example videos from last year’s competition can be viewed here. Contest details can be found on the RGG’s website here. As part of the competition, students can request a mentor from the local geotechnical community to provide guidance with the topic chosen.
The Regina Geotechnical Group is a local chapter of the Canadian Geotechnical Association. The group is made up of local geotechnical professionals, and is dedicated to educating about and promoting geotechnical engineering in Saskatchewan.
We encourage you to participate in this year’s edition of the Soil Rocks Video Competition. It is a great opportunity to learn, to connect with some of Saskatchewan’s geotechnical professionals, and to win the competition prize.
We look forward to seeing your entry!
Kim Doran P.Eng. and Matt Dipple P.Eng.
