About L.E.A.P.

Our aim is to expose the youth of today to the possibilities of tomorrow.

By showcasing McMaster University’s Faculty of Engineering, we are able to introduce high school students (Grades 9 to 12) who have a keen interest in tackling topics in some of the most innovative areas of engineering to a variety of career options.

This program is offered each year in July and August at McMaster University. High school students from around the world participate in L.E.A.P. and also have an option to experience university student life in our residence. At L.E.A.P. 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 and inspire young men and women to pursue new understandings of science, mathematics and technology.
