What is it?
Queen's Applied Science hosts a weekend enrichment program designed for high school girls. The goals of Engenuity are to enable participants to make an informed decision about a career in engineering and to increase participants' technical confidence, creativity and skills. The program will be staffed and run by female engineering students and professors.
Throughout the workshop, guests and a variety of activities will demonstrate the diversity and flexibility of an engineering degree. Participants will acquire confidence with technical tasks through a progressive hands-on' approach. Skills will be taught using a series of short tutorials on tools, safety, applied sciences, and design. These skills will be further developed through "make and take" electrical and mechanical projects. The final activity, a team design challenge, will give participants a chance to use their newly acquired skills in a fun and creative way.
