Welcome to Aboriginal Access to Engineering, Queen's University

Black Youth in STEM

The Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science at Queen's University welcomes you to our Black Youth in STEM programming!


Black Youth in STEM is a new virtual club designed for children in grades 1 through 8. We explore Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math through fun, hands-on activities in a Black-positive space. Instructors will welcome various guest professionals and students to the sessions, and provide all materials needed for your child to engage in the activities.

Programming is delivered by two current Queen's engineering students, allied with the full-time teaching staff of Aboriginal Access to Engineering and in collaboration with Connections Engineering Outreach. Aboriginal Access to Engineering has nationally recognized success in increasing Indigenous representation in the field of engineering, and their award-winning approach to culturally-informed outreach is helping guide the establishment of Black Youth in STEM.

We have programs specific to KINGSTON AREA residents in grades 1 through 8, and then an online-only program for grades 4 through 8, open to those further away from Kingston (within Canada). 

Spaces are limited in the program in order to ensure high quality interaction in an online environment. Registration is at no cost to participants.

The next sessions for Black Youth in STEM start in January 2021, and registration is now open!

  • KINGSTON: What a Reaction! Children in grades 1 through 4 will explore a range of physical and chemical reactions in this exciting club
  • KINGSTON: Take Flight Children in grades 5 through 8 will explore flight through planes, drones, and rockets!
  • OPEN: Introduction to STEM For children in grades 4 through 8, an online introduction to our programming
