Pump House - History in Motion

Historically, women have been absent from the history of Kingston's first waterworks. Tour this site to explore the changing landscape as more women enter the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). Special guests W.A.F.F.L.E.S and Queen's Tech 'N' Tinker Trailer will be on site with hands-on activities focused on STEM.
