Kick-Start into Science

Kick-Start registration is now closed for the fall semester.

Don't just survive university. Crush it! Kick-Start into Science maximizes opportunities for students in the Faculty of Science to adapt to change, conquer challenges and prove victorious at the end of the semester and beyond.

What is Kick-Start into Science?

Kick-Start is a series of weekly workshops that take place in the first four weeks of theĀ fall semester. You can choose from two different themes:

Each theme is led by two highly successful upper-year students in the Faculty of Science who have made the most of their time at Carleton and who want to help other students do the same. The Kick-Start Coordinators not only lead the weekly workshops, but they also mentor Kick-Start students one-on-one outside of the workshops.

Registration for each section is limited and selective. Students must fill out the application form, including writing a paragraph on why you would like to be involved, in order to apply.

Why Participate in Kick-Start into Science?

Kick-Start is our way of handing you a stellar university experience in the Faculty of Science on a platter. By participating in Kick-Start, you will:

  • Collect information and tools from highly driven upper-year mentors
  • Learn specific information about your series topic

Students will earn ballots for each workshop and each SSSC event they attend throughout the duration of Kick-Start, which will be entered into a drawing at the end of the series. Prizes include a $50 gift card placed on a student's Carleton account, Carleton swag, and other prizes!
