Welcome to Indigenous Futures in 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 virtual club designed for children in the Kingston, Ontario area who are 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 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 is fully enrolled for grades 1-4 in 2021. We have some space remaining in our Engineering course for students in grades 5-8.

Register through the Connections Engineering Outreach system
