Clubs for teens

Targeting participants in grades 7 to 10, these bilingual educational initiatives provide a positive atmosphere to promote science and engineering. The clubs run for 2.5 hours and participants engage in fun, hands-on activities.

TeenSci Club offers a mix of engineering and science through building innovative projects, biology projects, using 3D printing technology, and much more!

TeenTech Club gives the participants the opportunity to work on an end project of Mini Hydroponics where they will learn 3D design, Arduino, and laser cutting in order to complete the project.

Frequently-asked questions

Projects

Are the same projects repeated each term?

For clubs, some projects may be repeated from previous years (camps, events, etc), but we try our best to compile a brand new curriculum. TeenSci and TeenTech are the only exception to this rule, where projects may be repeated from year to year.

The EngSci Club and GirlSci Club share the same curriculum.

The Robotics and Coding Club share the same curriculum as the MakerGirls Club.

The Coding & Robotics Club (and MakerGirls Club) on campus and the Coding & Robotics Clubs off-campus share the same curriculum.


Registration

How do I make a change to my registration?

Please e-mail us at adventures@uOttawa.ca or call us at 613-562-5491 to request any changes to your registration. If you wish to modify the club language, type of club, or club location we would be happy to accommodate your request, given that there are spots available.

Unfortunately we cannot accommodate schedule changes (regarding the date of the club) with less than two weeks’ notice before the start of the club you're requesting to change.

What is your cancellation/refund policy?

You may cancel your registration up to two weeks before the start date of your registered club and receive a refund. However, a $30 administrative fee will be charged for every refund. We cannot offer a refund if a cancellation is made with less than two weeks’ notice.

I am currently on a waiting list. What is the next step?

Our team will contact you if a spot arises, and advise you on how to proceed with payment. You can contact our team to determine where you are on the waiting list by calling the Engineering Outreach Office.

What is your behavioural policy?

If behavioural problems should arise with your child: an administrator will contact you regarding the incident, and if necessary, they will issue a warning.

If the problem persists or is unacceptable: the participant may be removed from our program. We absolutely do not tolerate any violence, bullying or disrespect in our programs.

If my child and their friend are both registered for the same club, will they be grouped together?

There are multiple groups within each program, so please indicate in the comments section of your registration if you would like your child to be placed with a friend or family member.

Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee any groupings (especially if the children's languages, grades or clubs are different). We will do our best to accommodate your request.


Scent free zone

Help us keep the air we share healthy and fragrance-free. The chemicals used in scented products can make some people sick, especially those with fragrance sensitivities, asthma, allergies and other medical conditions. Please do not wear perfume, cologne, aftershave and other fragrance. Use unscented personal care products.
