Helix is a high school enrichment program designed for students who have a strong interest in science and mathematics. Helix consists of a series of week-long, non-credit courses, for students in Grades 9-12 that run for the month of July.

Helix is designed to be intense and academically rigorous. Students will study advanced topics in science and applied mathematics that draw upon the research strengths of the Faculty of Science at York University. Students will be guided through cutting-edge interdisciplinary topics through a series of lectures, hands-on workshops, experiments, demonstrations, and field trips. Courses are developed and delivered by professors, post-doctoral fellows, visiting scholars, and graduate students.

An optional residence program provides the opportunity for students from across Canada and around the world to participate.  Interested students will stay in one of York University’s dormitory style residences, will be supervised by residence program staff, and go on trips across the GTA.
