Students participating in the c_wonder STEM Camp

Welcome to c_wonder STEM camp!

This summer, University of Ontario Institute of Technology Engineering Outreach is proud to be hosting c_wonder Summer Academy and c_wonder Community Camp!

The c_wonder: STEM Community Camp and Summer Academy programs (formerly named EngSquad Summer Camp) have been offered for the past four years through Engineering Outreach in our Faculty of Engineering and Applied Sciences.  The vision of Engineering Outreach is to engage and spark curiosity in children and youth in engineering through fun and exciting hands-on activities and programs include classroom workshops, day camps, and specialized programs.  Engineering Outreach is also a network member of Actua, a national charity that is preparing youth to be innovators and leaders by engaging them in exciting and accessible STEM experiences that build critical skills and confidence. 

The c_wonder camp programs have been designed to introduce elementary and secondary students to Engineering and the Engineering Design process, aligned to the Ontario curriculum in Science, Technology, and Math.  A wide range of high- and low-tech resources are used throughout each camp week and each week has a unique theme.  Summer instructors are Engineering or Science undergraduate students or new graduates with a degree in a STEM field.  The program is focused on offering accessible STEM learning opportunities to youth and offers bursaries to those who might require financial assistance to participate.  In addition, revenue generated from camp is used to support free programming for youth, teachers and parents throughout the school year across Durham Region and our surrounding communities
