All of WiSE’s outreach programs, including EngSci Day, have been adapted to virtual platforms and will continue to run online. EngSci Day will be held through Google Classroom on March 27th and 28th and will consist of a combination of interactive science and engineering experiments, a robotics design contest, and engaging presentations from other Queen’s University clubs.
Each WiSE outreach volunteer will be in charge of envisioning one experiment that elementary school students can try at home, under the supervision of their parents or guardians. Outreach volunteers must purchase the materials for their experiment, record a video of themselves completing the experiment at home, edit the video, and upload it to the virtual “classroom”. The options for at-home experiments are endless, since outreach volunteers are no longer restricted by time. We will be hosting a live introduction section Saturday morning and live Q&A sessions throughout the event where participants can interact with volunteers and will be able to ask any questions they may have regarding experiments.
