Program

Who?

This summer program is designed for all students aged 11-14 years old (grades 6-8) with an interest in design, technology, art, science, and engineering.

Why?

Canada’s knowledge-based economy is continuing to grow, requiring youth to be well-versed in all types of digital tools and technologies. This new economy requires new literacies than previous generations including critical and design thinking, numeracy, and communication skills. This intensive 2-week workshop gives students an opportunity to engage with these technologies and develop these skills in a post-secondary environment.
