Sparking interest in STEM
Our initiatives challenge stereotypes, break down barriers and foster a passion for engineering
This Schulich-sponsored program is for grades 11 and 12 students with interests in math and science. Our dedicated Discover Engineering team are current engineering students. Together, they visit hundreds of high schools every year. They share insights into what engineering is. They describe their experiences as a student. And, they share information about the different engineering programs we offer.
Tours and demonstrations
Invite the Discover Engineering team to visit your school. We share hands-on engineering demonstrations aligned to the high school curriculum. We also give on-campus tours to student groups.
Minds in Motion
We partner with the Faculty of Kinesiology on the Minds in Motion program. Together, we offer children’s summer camps, workshops, outreach initiatives, clubs and events. Minds in Motion brings science and engineering to life. Even better, we open kids’ minds to the world of careers available in engineering and science.
What's a mind in motion?
