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.

    April 25, 2020

    ** COVID-19 Update: You may have heard that McMaster University has cancelled all classes for the rest of the academic term and has urged the cancellation of non-essential events. In keeping with this policy, MCYU will be cancelling its on-campus lectures for April and May. We are in the process of adapting the March, April and May lectures for online.

We’ve also put together a list of online resources for parents. You can find this info in our Kid Zone here.
