Student learning

Sparking interest in STEM

Our initiatives challenge stereotypes, break down barriers and foster a passion for engineering

Discover 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 engineering students. And, they share information about the different engineering programs we offer.

Virtual high school workshops

Invite the Discover Engineering team to visit your school virtually. We share engineering workshops aligned to the high school curriculum. 

Choose from four curriculum-related topics:

  1. Designing a Sustainable Future with Engineering
  2. Biomimicry: The Nature of Engineering
  3. Women in Artificial Intelligence
  4. Bioengineering, Medicine and Health Science
