Ontario Tech acknowledges the lands and people of the Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation.

We are thankful to be welcome on these lands in friendship. The lands we are situated on are covered by the Williams Treaties and are the traditional territory of the Mississaugas, a branch of the greater Anishinaabeg Nation, including Algonquin, Ojibway, Odawa and Pottawatomi. These lands remain home to many Indigenous nations and peoples.

We acknowledge this land out of respect for the Indigenous nations who have cared for Turtle Island, also called North America, from before the arrival of settler peoples until this day. Most importantly, we acknowledge that the history of these lands has been tainted by poor treatment and a lack of friendship with the First Nations who call them home.

This history is something we are all affected by because we are all treaty people in Canada. We all have a shared history to reflect on, and each of us is affected by this history in different ways. Our past defines our present, but if we move forward as friends and allies, then it does not have to define our future.

Black Youth Programs

Engineering Outreach is proud to develop a program specifically for Black youth in Grades 1 to 12. Designed by Black STEM students, the program provides Black youth with a community-oriented and accessible learning environment to explore different areas of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) as well as coding, and engineering design. With the intent for students to develop skills critical for the future, the program highlights Black role models, promotes academic pursuits, and encourages growth in STEM literacy.  We are pleased to offer these programs at no cost to families with the generous support of Actua and the Government of Canada’s CanCode program.

 

Black Youth STEM and Coding Clubs

Our Black Youth STEM and Coding Clubs have been designed to introduce youth to STEM concepts including engineering design, scientific inquiry and the fundamentals of coding. The curriculum for these programs is aligned to the Ontario Curriculum in the areas of science, technology and mathematics. These programs will be open to youth in grades 1 to 12. Please note that all Black Youth STEM and Coding Clubs will take place on Google Meets. Further information will be provided after registration.
