What is QSEA Jr. ?

With both residence and day options available, the QSEA Jr. program is an engineering-focused educational summer program for students entering grade 8 or 9 that exposes participants to engineering design, innovation, robotics, and makerspaces. The QSEA Jr. program presents students with a broad engineering overview, using lab facilities and thought-provoking projects to inform and engage students without being technically overwhelming. The team-based design projects involve collaboration, leadership, communication, creativity, and critical thinking. 

The Academy runs in weekly July and August.  Programs run from Monday to Friday; 9:00am – 4:00pm Monday to Thursday, and 9:00am – 1:00pm on Fridays. 

The cost of the program is $325 for students commuting to Queen’s campus which includes lunch and full-time supervision. For students wishing to stay in residence the cost of the program is $1150, which includes on-campus accommodations, three meals/day, full-time supervision, and supervised evening activities.
