Our program features insights from industry professionals, providing participants with valuable exposure to various careers and university programs. We prioritize the cultivation of leadership skills and the development of essential soft skills, ensuring a holistic and impactful learning experience that goes beyond the ordinary summer camp setting.

The Engineering Academy is geared towards budding engineers! This Academy focuses specifically on hands-on engineering activities and explores the intersectionality of different engineering disciplines when it comes to solving big problems. Students will meet with mentors from different engineering backgrounds and explore different areas of study.

Students will also have the opportunity to check out Carleton’s campus and engage in their own engineering experiments.
