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.

Girls STEM Club

Each Girls STEM Club session will allow girls to explore STEM themes through interactive activities designed to introduce youth to science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) concepts including engineering design, scientific inquiry, and coding. Check the program details below to see what levels we are currently running.

The club will also connect participants with like-minded, supportive peers and role-models who will encourage girls to pursue STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) fields.

    Join us for the Imagineering Marvels: Structural Engineering TinkerCAD workshop, an exciting opportunity to learn more about civil and structural engineering through real life design challenges! Over two engaging sessions, we'll dive into activities to introduce you to the exciting world of TinkerCAD and 3D modelling. Unleash your creativity as we explore the essential components of crafting remarkable structures. Register Now!

    Imagineering Marvels: Structural Engineering TInkerCAD Workshop is designed to ignite a spark for engineering in the minds of participants. Participants will learn about the exciting world of civil engineering, learning how to create strong, stable, and beautiful structures. Participants will bring their ideas to life with TinkerCAD and 3D Printing!

    Highlights of Activities:

    Week 1: Put on your Tinker hats - Exploring 3D modeling  and 3D printing 

    Participants will become familiar with TinkerCAD, exploring different components of designing with this software. Each participant will create a design on TinkerCAD to be 3D printed for them to bring home in week 2. 

    Week 2: Civil Engineering in action- Structural design concepts and applications

    Participants will use their knowledge gained from week one to solve a structural engineering challenge. There is a structure that needs repair and improvement and our team of engineers needs your knowledge to help fix it!
