The Enrichment Studies Unit has partnered with the Crown Ward Education Championship Team to offer the PrepU program. PrepU allows young people who are wards of the Crown to experience an introduction to post-secondary opportunities in a compassionate and encouraging environment.
Aboriginal Access to Engineering (AAE) at Queen’s University is committed to increasing the number of Aboriginal engineers in Canada. The Enrichment Studies Unit has partnered with AAE to provide Aboriginal Aboriginal students in grades 7 and 8 a culturally relevant introduction to the engineering profession during Engineering Week for Aboriginal Youth (EngWAY). EngWAY programming is funded through generous alumni support, as well as through Actua, and is free to qualified participants.
Queen’s Summer Engineering Academy (QSEA)
Connections: Queen’s Summer Engineering Academy (QSEA) presents several opportunities for students, currently in Grades 7-12, to explore Queen’s engineering topics. All courses are designed to include thought provoking projects to inform and engage students without being technically overwhelming. The team-based design projects involve collaboration, leadership, communication, creativity, and critical thinking. These are the same concepts and methodologies Queen’s engineering students study. A description of the summer 2017 course offerings will be available online here in the coming weeks.
