Welcome to McMaster’s Children and Youth University. MCYU aims to activate a dynamic community of educators, community partners as well as youth and their families to share in the discovery that comes through the understanding of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math (STEAM). Our long-term goal is to encourage youth to become empowered and engaged citizens.

 

MCYU programs provide the unique opportunity of making higher education fun and accessible to all children and youth.

 

HOW TO PARTNER WITH US

 

ON CAMPUS LECTURE SERIES

 

MCYU offers FREE monthly, Saturday morning lectures, on McMaster University’s Main St. Campus. Lectures are delivered by University Professors from all areas of STEAM, designed to encourage youth to QUESTION – DISCOVER – CREATE. Question the world around them, Discover their potential, Create amazing future opportunities.

 

Post Lecture Activities

 

Everyone learns in different ways, and learning is enhanced when students get to experience the excitement of discovery. MCYU has partnered with the McMaster chapter of Lets Talk Science to offer post-lecture, hands-on activities that relate to the lecture topic. This hands on learning experience helps make the information from the lecture come to life.

    Lecture Description:

    RUMOURS, CONSPIRACIES & LIES! OH MY! HOW TO SEPARATE FACT FROM FICTION – Sometimes we hear rumours or stories about secret agents scheming to control some of history’s big events or trying to trick us into believing science that isn’t true. These stories can be a lot of fun! Yet sometimes these “conspiracy theories” can confuse us and cause problems of their own. Join us as we discover the kind of tools investigators use to spot fake news, debunk pseudo-science, and separate fact from fiction.
     

    Let’s Talk Science will run hands-on activities after the lecture from 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

    Ages: 7-14 (whole family welcome)
