Engineers of Tomorrow (https://engineersoftomorrow.ca/) is a not-for-profit volunteer organization committed to STEM Outreach. They started in Ontario running the Engineer in Residence (EIR) program started by the Professional Engineers Ontario (PEO). They are now expanding to other provinces.
Several IEEE Sections in Canada have collaborated with Engineers of Tomorrow and PEO volunteers to for local events in their sections – notably Peterborough, Ottawa, and London sections.
Engineers of Tomorrow can be another source to arrange a classroom visit by an engineer through that EIR program (https://eir.ca/). Teachers can register to be matched with a local engineer. While their resources are targeted for supporting engineers in the EIR program, this is growing and is a probable source for lesson planning.
IEEE REACH (Raising Engineering Awareness through the Conduit of History – https://reach.ieee.org) has numerous lesson plans on the history of specific technologies and are continually expanding this resource. These can be useful parts of school projects.
