Modelled after our Da Vinci Engineering Enrichment Program (DEEP) Summer Academy for high school students, Jr. DEEP offers courses on cutting-edge topics in science, technology and engineering, with an emphasis on hands-on learning.
We are currently in the process of developing our Jr. DEEP 2018 Summer programs! We hope to have updated information in early Spring.
To receive information on upcoming programs directly, we encourage you to sign up for our mailing list.
2017 Course Descriptions:
*All course information pertains to the Jr. DEEP 2017 Program. We will be offering all new courses for Jr. DEEP 2018 Program.
Disciplines: Mechanical Engineering, Industrial Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Computer Science.
Disciplines: Mechanical Engineering, Industrial Engineering, Electrical Engineering.
Disciplines: Biomedical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Industrial Engineering.
Discipline: Chemical Engineering, Materials Science, Industrial Engineering.
Disciplines: Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Aerospace Engineering, Environmental Engineering.
How can we transform the common household to maximize luxury, accessibility, and efficiency? How might we reduce our household waste? Students will have the opportunity to design and create various household products as well as their ideal homes, while considering residential and infrastructural networks. Their designs will promote equity, as students will look for ways to bridge the current gap in urban living conditions. Students will also take on each initiative as stewards of the environment.
Disciplines: Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Environmental Engineering.
Students will formulate a research question involving a consumer product of their choice. They will track the production, distribution, and consumption of their products, and map the flow of resources. They will investigate the inefficiencies, injustices, and inequalities that arise in the making and sale of their product, and use their findings to brainstorm possible solutions to these problems. Students will learn essential research skills, techniques for optimizing production and distribution, and how to be responsible consumers.
Disciplines: Materials Science, Industrial Engineering.
The course aims to explore what makes up the very fabric of our universe. It will introduce students to current research and theory concerning the nature of existence and higher dimensions of space-time. It will look closely at how scientists and engineers team-up to solve some of the most complex questions ever asked, and attempt to unite the theories of quantum mechanics and general relativity.
Disciplines: Industrial Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Aerospace Engineering.
What if computers knew exactly what needed to be done at all times, all on their own? This course will explore a future where artificial intelligence controls our world. Students will have the opportunity to design different intelligent mechanisms that will alleviate human stress and conflict, while also considering other impacts an increasingly mechanized world will have. Our future has potential for such marvels as self-driving cars and machines that will operate on their own to cook and clean, and it is up to us to design that future responsibly.
Disciplines: Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Computer Engineering, Coding.
Time: 9:00 am to 4:00 pm
Supervision: We offer supervision from 8 to 9 am and 4 to 5 pm at no additional charge.
Cost: $325 per week
(Please note that this fee is for 2017. We are in the process of finalizing 2018 camp fees.)
Location: University of Toronto, St. George Campus (College and St. George)
