Programs for Kids
The Faculty provides inventive programs for kids to cultivate their sense of curiosity, giving them memorable experiences that encourage them to explore engineering, science and technology.
DiscoverE is a student-delivered initiative of the Faculty of Engineering with a focus on fun, accessibility and mentorship. DiscoverE delivers high-impact classroom workshops, unique clubs and events, and engaging summer programs that bring the excitement and possibilities of engineering, science, and technology to 20,000 youth every year.
The Girls, Engineering, and Mentorship (GEM) Club fosters an interest in science and technology in young girls from Grade 3 - 8 helping them gain the confidence to succeed in the classroom and beyond. Under the guidance of female Engineering students, GEM girls take part in hands-on challenges, laboratory visits, mentor presentations, and group and individual projects that build practical skills for science and engineering.
Girls Coding Club
Girls Coding Clubs are designed for students with no previous coding knowledge as well as those who have attended DiscoverE Coding Club in the past, and are open to any girl in Grades 3 to 9. We choose a different coding language each fall. Previous programs have focused on Python and Arduinos. Stay tuned for this year’s language!
