Outreach Programs

The engineering stream at NOIC Academy includes participation in University sponsored high school programs in Grade 11 and Grade 12. These programs are meant to facilitate student learning of engineering concepts and principles, as well as to introduce students to university-level academic requirements. At NOIC Academy, we present highly-motivated students with opportunities that will assist them with university applications and provide an invaluable subject-specific experience.

The faculty of applied science and engineering at the University of Toronto offers two programs:

The Engineering High School Saturday Program

This is an enrichment program for students in grades 9 to 11 looking to explore exciting new topics in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM), as well as learn more about success in and after university. This is a program that will introduce students to a wide range of topics, such as:

Da Vinci Engineering Enrichment Program (Deep)

This enrichment program is designed for highly motivated high school students with an aptitude for science and math, and a desire to pursue engineering studies at University. The program offers an in-depth study of a specific field, and it provides students with a head start in their university career.

The faculty of engineering at the University of Waterloo
offers one summer program.

Catalyst Summer Program

The program empowers high school students to be the agents of change in their community, and the world, by creating opportunities for them to increase awareness, confidence and leadership abilities in engineering, science and technology. The program focuses on two themes over two weeks in the summer. Week one is centered around Engineering Design, creative problem solving and collaborative design projects. Week two builds on the skills learned from week one, and introduces business/entrepreneurship work and team-based projects to create solutions to engineering problems.
