About Us

Science Engagement Programs offer innovative and engaging programs designed to inspire youth and discover exciting topics in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). Out of the Faculty of Science at York University, our programs use a discovery and inquiry-based learning approach that is focused on ‘learning by doing’. Our outreach model provides students with a chance to work in small groups on a variety of projects that will help foster problem solving, critical thinking, and an overall passion for STEM.

Our programs take place within the Faculty of Science at the Keele Campus of York University, within schools, community centres, and other educational institutions. Within the university environment, this gives students the unique opportunity to learn and discover the world of science and engineering. In each of our programs, whether in day-long workshops or week-long camps, we enrich the learning experience with demonstrations from various student groups, faculty presentations, laboratory visits, and hands-on workshops.
