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 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 currently are running programming specific to KINGSTON, ONTARIO AREA residents in grades 1 through 8, and look to expand online offerings beyond Kingston in the Fall of 2021

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 on March 21, 2021, with registration now open!

We will be offering three sections of CODING and ROBOTICS for registered participants, with all materials provided on loan.
