The Engineering Outreach Office at the University of Toronto is happy to add the EngLIFE suite of programs to our Pre-University Programs. EngLIFE programs seek to highlight, develop and provide opportunities for students from underrepresented groups and low-income communities to engage in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) curriculum.

Suite of Programs


Grades 3 to 8

Launch is a community-based program where campers learn about STEM through discovery-based activities and engage in challenges geared towards preparing students to become active leaders in their school, community and extracurricular activities. This program takes place off-campus at designated schools in the GTA.


Grades 3 to 8

ENGage participants take part in a range of hands-on science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) activities. Students also develop their teamwork and leadership skills.

EngLIFE Outreach Workshops

Grades 9 – 12

EngLIFE Outreach Workshops are hands-on, engaging and interactive STEM activities linked to Ontario curriculum expectations for students in grades 9-12. Our workshops can accommodate a maximum of 30 students and are offered for schools listed in the Toronto Neighbourhood Improvement Areas, community groups, church groups and after school programs that serve traditionally underrepresented groups and low-income communities.


Grades 10 – 11

Blueprint is an academic enrichment program that was designed for highly motivated black students in grades 10 and 11 who are interested in careers in Science, Technology Engineering and Math with a strong interest in Engineering. The program includes 5 weeks of summer programming and yearlong student engagement including monthly webinars and scheduled meet-ups. Students will be exposed to state-of-the-art teaching facilities and labs at Canada’s top engineering school and have the opportunity to hear from students and researchers in the fields.

ENGage High School Saturdays

Grades 9 – 12

ENGage High School Saturday Program is a mentorship program for Black High School students interested in learning more about STEM. This is a community-building program that will help students not only develop their academic skills in Science but also gain valuable life skills. We hope that through this experience the students become lifelong learners in the STEM fields.
