ABOUT US



McMaster Children and Youth University delivers STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) based programming for children and youth in the form of FREE, on-campus Lectures by university professors and community outreach workshops facilitated by McMaster University students trained through our MCYU in the City program.

MCYU focuses on family learning, which allows for greater long-term retention of the material being delivered; creating conversational opportunities well beyond the classroom.

History

The McMaster Children & Youth University (MCYU) was launched in 2011 and is the FIRST Children’s University in Canada with programming for interactive, family-based discovery.

MCYU was founded in 2011 by Dr. Sandeep Raha and Dr. Katrin Scheinemann, professors in McMaster’s Department of Pediatrics, and is based on the Children’s university model from Europe, which is now operating throughout the world.
