Summer Program - Geography

Geography-Engineering week

Ever wonder what Ottawa looked like 10,000 years ago? Are you interested in learning about the science and technology used to study our ever-changing environment?

This new program partners the Department of Geography, Environment and Geomatics of the Faculty of Arts with the Faculty of Engineering to offer a week of exciting hands-on activities and workshops in and around Ottawa that will let you explore and understand the dynamic environment in which we live.

This enrichment program will bring you to locations to witness dramatic evidence of past glaciations and ancient landslides and study the microclimates of caves, take you to our labs to analyze field samples you’ve collected, introduce you to microscopic living organisms and what they can tell us about past ecosystems, and teach you how to use GIS, GPS and time-lapse photography to explore the Ottawa-Gatineau region.

In case you’re still wondering...Ottawa was at the bottom of the Champlain Sea 10,000 years ago!

Please keep in mind that you will hike and walk on uneven grounds. The activities will take place rain or shine, and participants are recommended to dress accordingly and wear comfortable shoes.

This particular enrichment course will be offered exclusively in French and exclusively in English during the same week. Please note the language when registering for your desired program.

Cost: $270
