Maximum City is an award-winning spring and summer program and enriched curricular experience for young city builders in Grades 5-8, operating since 2011. It is taught by leading experts and is hosted on the University of Toronto campus and nearby sites. The program includes a range of hands-on activities in urban topics such as architecture, design, the environment, technology, the arts, civic engagement and mobility. The program culminates in a design challenge which asks students to collaborate on a real-life problem in our urban environment and present their solutions to a panel of experts and decision-makers. Each week at Maximum City focuses on a different urban theme such as designing better public spaces or welcoming newcomers; students are encouraged to sign up for single or multiple weeks as each theme is a stand-alone topic.
