Outreach Volunteers Blog while they Travel

2014-05-06

Labrador KidsSpringtime is a busy time for many of our Let’s Talk Science volunteers. Across the country post-secondary students are travelling far distances to share their passion for science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) with children and youth!

We want all children across Canada to have access to fun, hands-on STEM experiences. In order to help make this happen, Let’s Talk Science funds the travel for our volunteers to visit remote schools that do not often receive special visitors into their classroom. This spring we have had volunteers blogging about their adventures and sharing their experiences!

In April, volunteers Giselle and Tyler from Simon Fraser University spent 5 days travelling and visiting schools in Pemberton, Lillooet, and Squamish, BC. Tyler documented his trip, sharing reviews of where they stayed and ate, and specifically the fantastic outcomes of their many school visits!

This week, we have more volunteers travelling and blogging! From the east side of Canada you can read the blog from Let’s Talk Science at Memorial University volunteers Sean and Renee as they travel Labrador. And from western Canada, Let’s Talk Science volunteers from the University of Alberta will be traveling north to Yellowknife and Lutselk’e. Both of these blogs will be hosted on our national blogging site.

Let’s Talk Science‘s rural outreach is supported nationally by the Blachford Group, and in British Columbia by BC Hydro. For a full list of our amazing supporters visit our supporter page
