Connections Engineering Outreach and the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science are offering this VIRTUAL GIRLS ONLY session of QSEA as a commitment to removing barriers for women and girls in science, and engaging and inspiring a love of curious thought about the world around us.

This program presents students with an overview of engineering using age-appropriate, and thought-provoking projects to inform and engage students without being technically overwhelming. Participants will work with female instructors as they participate in activities that promote collaboration, leadership, communication, creativity, and critical thinking. To register for the course, families will be asked to pay a holding deposit, that will be fully refunded after participating in the course.

Please find more information about about our course offerings below:
