FIELD Summer Program

 career FIELDs x FIELD trips
Take part in hands-on workshops on personal growth and career exploration over the summer. Field trips included!

Purpose
Are you doing research or taking a class this summer? Get out of the lab and join us for the FIELD Summer Program! FIELD supports your personal and professional development by providing opportunities to explore different career fields through fun and informative field trips.

Through a blend of reflective workshops and visits to engineering organizations and sites, you will gain a deeper understanding of yourself as well as the skills relevant to your aspirations for success at Skule™ and beyond. This year’s FIELD Summer Program includes trips to Canada’s Wonderland, Ripley’s Aquarium, and more – so be sure to sign up below!

To ensure commitment, participants must submit a $30 refundable deposit. The deposit will be returned during the final session on July 27th, provided that you attend 5 of the 8 sessions. No participant will be turned away due to finances. Please contact Sania Hameed, Teaching and Learning Program Assistant, ILead (sania.hameed@utoronto.ca) with any questions or concerns.

(FIELD participation also counts towards your Co-curricular Record (CCR); however, in order to be eligible for the CCR, you must attend 5 sessions, of which 3 must be workshops.)
