our scientists will visit your community

Sledding Science 2007 at the Fluvarium in NewfoundlandScience learning doesn't just happen in the classroom — it can happen anywhere in your community, thanks to Let’s Talk Science!

Our volunteers visit a wide variety of communities across Canada, appearing at venues such as festivals, libraries, bookstores and science institutions. We also have extensive experience with community groups, including Girl Guides and Scouts, and often visit remote areas and Aboriginal communities. Indoors or outdoors in winter, spring, summer or fall — our volunteers can be where you are!

Our science outreach is free of cost to your community.

For more information about having Let’s Talk Science volunteers at your community gathering, visit our outreach sites page for participating universities or colleges near you. Each site is managed locally by Let's Talk Science Partnership Program Coordinators, who can answer questions you may have about the Program, or provide you with local event information.
