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.

Elementary STEM Clubs



Interested in wearable technology? Curious about the magic behind everyday gadgets? Join our Grade 6-8 Micro:Bit club and explore how clocks tick, compasses navigate, and more as you build and code your own piece of tech!

This grade 6-8 club will center around building and coding a Smartwatch using Micro:bit! During the first session, students will have the opportunity to put the watch together and in the sessions following, they will learn how to program the watch to run a variety of cool features! For example, a step counter! Each session will explore concepts that form the basis of all programming languages such as: loops, variables, conditionals and functions — through fun, hands-on, discovery-based activities. 

This club will also connect participants with like-minded, supportive peers and role-models who will encourage them to explore STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) fields and gain confidence in their own abilities. 

At the end of the program, participants will take home their own Micro:Bit smart watch to continue exploring and using their new skills!

Cost Per Participant: $150 + HST (includes the cost of the Micro:Bit Smartwatch)
Location: Ontario Tech North Oshawa Campus
