On behalf of the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science at Queen’s University, we would like to introduce you to Connections: Queen's Summer Engineering Academy (QSEA) Intermediate. This non-credit experiential education program offers engineering focused courses for students ranging from Grade 7 - Grade 8. The courses provide an overview of Engineering in a university setting, and caters to Canadian high school students. 

QSEA intermediate is available in both one-week and multiple-week versions as there are multiple different courses to choose from within July and August of 2021 for a total of 6 weeks. 

Here is a breakdown of the courses:

The Engineering Experience A & B: In the Engineering Experience A & B, students will be introduced to the main engineering disciplines offered at Queen's University.  Using their previous knowledge of math and science, participants will  asynchronously tackle open ended design problems, requiring abstract and  technical thinking to showcase the Engineering Design Process. 

Through a series of daily activities, each course offers students the  opportunity to learn basic engineering principles and skills such as  planning/designing, modeling, communication and computer programming. These activities will include, but are not limited to: Elastic Powered Cars, Intro to Micro:bits and Breadboarding with TinkerCAD. Daily synchronous touch points with current Queen's undergraduate students offer the opportunity to answer any questions that may arise throughout the week. 

In addition to designing and creating various projects, participants will be exposed to a variety of educational technologies including: Microcontrollers (micro:bits), CoSpaces, Artificial Intelligence (machine learning), TinkerCAD & various coding languages (block, python). The Engineering Experience A & B will lay the foundation for generations of engineers to come!

Character Development: This program helps build the following traits

  • Curiosity: Students will explore their curiosity about the engineering profession, the various disciplines, and how engineers are involved in solving real world problems.
  • Independence: Students will be asked to identify their own learning goal for the course and share with instructors to help them achieve it.
