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 kids in grades 3 through 8 who are resident in the Kingston region. In this 6-week introductory session, we will be exploring 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 being 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.

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

Black Youth in STEM takes place over six weeks from November 8th to December 13th inclusive, with online Zoom meetings scheduled at 2:00 - 4:00 PM on the following Sundays:

·        November 8

·        November 15
