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.

Girl Guide Badge Day

Each year our Ontario Tech Engineering Outreach Instructors are excited to welcome Girl Guide troops from across Durham Region and our surrounding communities to participate in projects so they can earn their ONWiE Girl Guide badge. During the day, Girl Guides are introduced to various strands of engineering, the principles behind physics as well as have a chance to meet engineering students.

The event will provide a fun experience for the girls to meet other guides in the area, visit the Ontario Tech University campus, develop new skills and learn about engineering. 

Ontario Tech Engineering Outreach is inviting Girl Guide and Pathfinder Unit Leaders to sign up for a Virtual Badge Day Workshop! Workshops can include engineering-related topics such as coding, engineering design, electricity, and more. We will work with your unit to set up a workshop that meets your needs.

Workshops will take place during the month of March, be 1 hour and 30 minutes in length, and facilitated through the Google Meet platform. Workshops will be taught by young women from our Engineering Outreach Program Instructor team.

Our registration is currently full. However, you're encouraged to apply to be placed on a waitlist.  

Note: Only Unit Leaders can submit a registration form. If you are a parent who is interested in the event, please ask your local Girl Guide group for more information.


Registration is closed, stay tuned for future updates!

Please email to sign up for our mailing list and be the first to know about our future program offerings.
