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.

c_wonder: STEM Clubs

Student at computerEngineering Outreach is proud to be offering c_wonder: STEM Clubs for youth in Grades 1- 12 who have a desire to explore science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) in challenging and creative ways. Our programs have been designed to introduce youth to science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) concepts including engineering design, scientific inquiry and coding. The curriculum for these programs is aligned to the Ontario Curriculum in the areas of science, technology and mathematics. Each session explores a STEM theme through fun, discovery-based activities. Currently, we offer clubs in the fall, winter, spring and summer. 

Each week will focus on different engineering themes, and students will be guided through hands-on activities. Because our programs will be offered online, participants will be using commonly found household materials to design and build their projects in addition to online software. 

For Spring 2021 our programs will be open to youth in grades 1 to 12 during the 2020 - 2021 school year. 

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all of our programming for spring 2021 will be running virtually.
