Let's Talk Science Outreach is a national, community-based program connecting educators and youth with outstanding volunteers to deliver a wide variety of meaningful science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) activities for children as young as three years old and youth up to Grade 12.
Locally, each Let’s Talk Science Outreach site creates programs that are unique to their post-secondary institution and location. To request Outreach for your classroom or for a listing of on-campus special events hosted at the Outreach site near you, visit Find Local Outreach.
We create and deliver free curriculum-aligned hands-on workshops for preschool to Grade 12 students. We also take requests from community groups, libraries, summer camps, after-school programs and community festivals. For a list of sample outreach activities, check out our hands-on workshops.
Our trained and enthusiastic Let’s Talk Science Outreach volunteers pass their passion for science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) on to Canada’s future citizens. Learn more about our dedicated and talented volunteers.
