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.
