Waterloo Unlimited is a unique transdisciplinary high school enrichment program for high school students from across Canada at the University of Waterloo. It's not quite like anything you've ever done before. It's about challenging the borders of scholarship and developing higher-order skills: communication, analysis, synthesis, initiative, curiosity, responsibility, leadership, teamwork and creativity. It's about open-ended learning. It's about you, and your love of learning. We don't want to focus on a single discipline; we're more excited about integrating knowledge across disciplines. While you're at Waterloo Unlimited you'll attend classes and workshops from across Waterloo's six faculties (Arts, Applied Health Sciences, Engineering, Environment, Mathematics, and Science).
We live in the midst of change: technological change, social change, political change, environmental change. In modern times humankind has experienced an unprecedented rapidity of change. How do we adapt, or not adapt... and what are the consequences? Students will consider the perspectives of scientists, engineers, writers, and philosophers, as they examine the dynamics of change.
