Major topic areas include:

  • What is engineering and what do engineers do?
  • What is leadership? Is leadership important?
  • Design-thinking and the engineering design process
  • Exploring the role of science, technology and society
  • Professional skills development: presentation, communication and goal-setting
  • Building teams, working with others, developing persistence and resilience
  • Being a leader in your school and in your community; being a leader in STEM
  • Preparing for work and university

Interested students must submit a brief statement of interest ( 150 – 250 for students in grade 7-9 250-500 words) describing their future goals and goals for attending this program.

Please note that the statement of interest is a part of the registration form. You do not need to send it in to the Engineering Outreach Office.
