Alissa Boyle

The Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of Alberta (APEGA)
Outreach Manager
As the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of Alberta’s (APEGA) Outreach Manager, Alissa Boyle, oversees the association’s kindergarten to grade 12 and university outreach programs. She also works closely with the Women in APEGA Advisory Group to address key diversity issues in the engineering and geoscience professions. Her primary focus is on empowering students – particularly those in underrepresented populations – by providing them with relevant science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) experiences. As a youth advocate, she is dedicated to breaking down stereotypes, and recruiting a diverse group of students into STEM professions.

Prior to joining APEGA, Alissa discovered her passion for STEM outreach while serving as the Outreach Director at DiscoverE – a student-delivered initiative at the University of Alberta’s Faculty of Engineering. She led a team of 50 undergraduate and graduate students to design and deliver hands-on, curriculum-based programs such as classroom workshops, summer camps, and afterschool clubs to over 27,000 youth in 70 communities across Alberta annually. While working at DiscoverE, the organization became the world’s only three-time Google RISE (Roots in Science and Engineering) Award winner. Through these Google Awards, Alissa and her team delivered computer science camps in partnership with local Aboriginal Elders and community leaders, and designed, recorded, and launched the world’s first Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) on coding for youth and delivered by youth. Alissa holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Molecular Genetics from the University of Alberta.

She was named one of The Wanderer Online’s Top 100 Edmonton Women in Business in 2013 and Alberta Venture Magazine’s Alberta’s 50 Most Influential People in 2015.
