About WESA  

The Western Engineering Summer Academy is designed specifically for enriched Grades 9-12 high school students looking for a challenge this summer.  

If you are interested in programs for students in Grades 2 to 8 check out our Discovery Western Summer Camp.

WESA offers students the opportunity to explore these areas of engineering with labs, lectures and hands-on projects. The courses are taught by our very own professors and graduate students.

Additionally, to get a feel for what Academy is all about check out our pictures from previous years or our YouTube videos from past sessions

Note: WESA is designed for Grades 9-12 students who excel in science and math. Being enrolled in a gifted program is not a requirement.
