About Us

hedgehog dangling from balloon23 years ago, Geering Up set out to deliver fun hands-on activities to encourage youth across BC to consider careers in Science Engineering and Technology. Thanks to the commitment and dedication of our supporters we have since impacted over 85,000 youth and have reach 26 locations across the province.

Geering Up UBC Engineering & Science for Kids is a non-profit organization with the mandate of promoting science, engineering and technology to youth across British Columbia. Affiliated with the University of British Columbia, Geering Up is designed, organized and operated by UBC students. We endeavour to show program participants how fun, exciting and useful engineering and science can be.
