About this camp

Connections: Queen’s Summer Engineering Academy (QSEA)

The Queen's Summer Engineering Academy program is an engineering-focused educational summer program that exposes your child to engineering design and a variety of engineering disciplines. QSEA and QSEA Jr. presents students with a broad engineering overview, using lab facilities and thought-provoking projects to inform and engage students without being technically overwhelming. 

The Academy runs in July and August, and offers three concurrent programs per week, with each exploring interesting components and disciplines of engineering. Students can attend a one-week session, or to get a complete picture, they can sign up for as many weeks as they wish.

Director's Message


Scott Compeau, Engineering Outreach Coordinator

With years of experience as a chemical engineer and a high school Chemistry teacher, I take pride in properly designing our workshops to include important aspects of the engineering profession. Also, with a Masters degree specializing in engineering education and my thesis on high school students' perceptions of engineering, I am aware of the misperceptions that some students hold about the profession. With this knowledge, I also try to design the workshops to help correctly align students perceptions.
