The Learning Enrichment Advancement Program (Gr. 9-12)



At L.E.A.P. our aim is to expose the youth of today to the possibilities of tomorrow. By showcasing McMaster University’s Engineering Faculty, we are able to introduce high school students to a variety of career options that they may not have found elsewhere. We are dedicated to the development of creativity, innovation, and excellence while encouraging critical thinking, personal growth, and a passion for learning. It is our duty to break the limitations and stereotypes of our times and inspire young men and women to pursue new understandings of science, mathematics and technology.


Hey everyone! We are very excited about this upcoming summer at LEAP. Currently we are busy creating a new curriculum that will give you a taste of what engineering is all about and why we love it. No matter what stream you choose to go into you will leave with new skills and a better understanding of the world around you. Whether it is learning how to write code, create different types of reactions in our bio-chemistry labs or designing and testing your own structures and mechanisms. We will give you an understanding of the scientific theory but focus on the hands-on applications to give you the chance to create innovative designs of your own. In addition, you will get an idea of what the university experience is like with our engineering student instructors and on-campus facilities, including the option to stay in residence! If this sounds like something that is interesting to you please check out the 2014 Annual Report to learn more about the things we do and hopefully we will see you this summer!
