At Youth University, we encourage learning all year round! Guided by an experienced instructor, your child will get hands-on with concepts in science, technology, engineering, arts, and math. All programs encourage 21st century thinking in problem solving, collaboration, creativity, and technological literacy. We offer a supportive and welcoming experience on a post-secondary campus.
