At one of our newest Outreach locations, Université de Moncton, our volunteers are already hard at work (and play).
Time volunteering with Let’s Talk Science: Almost one week.
Area of study: Civil engineering
Inspirational Moment: At a Skills Canada event, a 91 year old man in a wheel chair asked to try our virtual reality videos. He really enjoyed the experience - it seemed to bring him back to childhood.
Favourite Let’s Talk Science volunteering activity: Using games to do youth outreach.
Why do you volunteer with Let’s Talk Science? I do a lot of volunteer work and really enjoy working with children. Through my volunteer work with Let’s Talk Science, I use my scientific knowledge and professional experiences to talk to youth about the importance of engineering, science and technology in an easy to understand and fun way. It is always a pleasure to impart knowledge to someone who will soon contribute to society.
Fun fact: I really love team work, exchanging ideas, communicating with others and understanding how kids learn.
