Waterloo Unlimited 2016-2017


Waterloo Unlimited is a unique, trans-disciplinary high school enrichment program at the University of Waterloo that brings together curious, motivated, well-rounded teens from across the country.

Rather than focusing on enrichment in a particular subject, each program revolves around a transdisciplinary theme that draw on Waterloo’s six faculties (Arts, Applied Health Sciences, Engineering, Environment, Mathematics, and Science) for a grand exploration of commonalities and differences leading to the integration of knowledge.

Waterloo Unlimited is not quite like anything you’ve ever done before. It’s not science camp or arts camp or music camp or math camp or leadership camp. It’s ‘everything’ camp.

Events run in November, March and May this year – CLICK HERE TO LEARN MORE AND REGISTER!
