Women in Science and Engineering (WiSE) is proud to host Engineering and Science Day. EngSci day will run twice a year to introduce girls in grades 1-6 to science and engineering. The events are run by current Queen’s students and will focus on engaging, hands-on activities to introduce science and engineering topics. Activities this year include structural challenges, robotics programming and chemistry experiments.
Children must have an EngSci Day shirt to participate in EngSci Day to ensure the event runs smoothly. Please see the two options for shirts:
1. If your child brings their EngSci Day shirt from the Fall 2018 event: please purchase the Old Shirt ticket for $5.
2. If your child requires a new shirt for this event: please purchase the New Shirt ticket for $10.
NOTE: If you buy an Old Shirt ticket but your child shows up without an EngSci Day Fall 2018 shirt, you’ll be required to pay the extra $5 to get a new shirt. No refunds will be issued if a New Shirt ticket was purchased but your child brings an old shirt (however, they can still get a new shirt). Only shirts from the Fall 2018 event will be accepted as old shirts.
In addition to purchasing a ticket, please fill out the permission form for each child being registered for the event. Please email the completed form to firstname.lastname@example.org or bring a printed copy to the event.
Lunch will be provided on the day of the event and allergies will be considered but your child MUST bring their EpiPen to the event.
