Welcome to the McMaster Children & Youth University

MCYU delivers FREE programming for children and youth ages 7-14 in all areas of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math (STEAM).


All of our programs are developed around our guiding philosophy, QUESTION – DISCOVER – CREATE™.


QUESTION the world around you, DISCOVER your potential, and CREATE a brighter future.


Our programs bridge the gap between the university and the wider Hamilton community by sharing the exciting research happening at McMaster University in a way that is fun and accessible to ALL children and youth. Our goal is to empower and academically prepare youth, especially those at a socioeconomic disadvantage, to aspire to university education in subject areas such as science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics (STEAM).


Youth, families and community agencies can join us on-campus at our Family Lecture Series presented by University Professors. Lectures are held on the fourth Saturday of every month from 11am-12pm. Families can also access our programs out in the community at one of our MCYU in the City Workshops led by highly trained McMaster University Students.
