youth engagement

Early education experiences in science, technology, math and engineering are shaping today’s children and youth into the leaders of tomorrow.

The University of Waterloo offers a wide range of outreach experiences for children, youth, and their families, all designed to inspire, educate, and engage. Our partnerships with school boards in Waterloo Region, and outreach across the globe, give students access to enrichment opportunities in fields related to computer science, mathematics, science, and engineering. Likewise, access to the arts, exploring concepts of peace and social justice, and chances to hear inspiring guest speakers in the classroom are all influencing the next generation of leaders.

For post-secondary students, opportunities like international exchange, experiential learning, entrepreneurism, and voluntarism play a large part in ensuring that UWaterloo students are able to carry Waterloo’s spirit of innovation beyond the classroom and into the community.
