MCYU offers monthly Saturday morning lectures, on McMaster University’s Main St. West Campus, delivered by faculty from all six major areas of study at the University. These areas include Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math (STEAM). These lectures offer youth and their families the opportunity to share in the innovative research that is being carried out by these experts, and to help understand how these discoveries impact all of our lives in different ways. Most importantly, it allows youth to ask the professors questions and appreciate how they are involved in the discovery process. The lectures help youth think about and question the world around them and serve as the first step in our educational philosophy, Question, Discover, Create TM.
In collaboration with the McMaster Chapter of Let’s Talk Science, we offer youth the chance to participate in hands-on activities following each of the monthly lectures.
