The University of Manitoba is a place where students come to define themselves, and Mini U prepares children and youth for this journey. For 36 years, we've captured their imaginations and encouraged them to explore our amazing world. Here, they can discover the sciences, connect with their creativity, develop physical activity and leadership skills.
Mini U encourages 4 to 16-year-olds to define themselves as trailblazers, innovators or visionaries. Register today for a physical activity program that will unlock your child's potential and open up a world of possibilities.
