Focus: Youth from early years through high school
Let’s Talk Science is committed to extending science outreach to youth in communities that do not have the same level of access to science programming as those in urban settings.
Each year, Let’s Talk Science mobilizes thousands of university and college students and science, engineering and technology professionals across Canada to visit elementary and high school classrooms, libraries, and community events to deliver fun, exciting hands-on science activities to children and youth free of charge.
These experienced and enthusiastic volunteers provide a unique and engaging learning experience, act as role models and shatter stereotypes about science and scientists. Outreach requests from any community in any province is welcomed.
