Tomorrow marks the 20th anniversary of Gander Academy Science and Technology days!
Let’s Talk Science Outreach volunteers from Memorial University travel to Gander, NL each year to help celebrate and excite students about science and technology along with local visitors.
“We’re really excited to be participating in this event!” says Heidi Kavanagh, rural coordinator for Let’s Talk Science Outreach at MUN. “Working with Gander Academy and Naomi Young, the chair of the event, has been a pleasure. You can see the dedication of the teachers to providing a meaningful, exciting day full of science and technology!”
For over a decade Let’s Talk Science Outreach has been involved in the excitement of this event. Our volunteers will be reaching over 1000 students from Kindergarten up to Grade 6 over the next 2 days with a variety of hands-on activities about paleontology, engineering, electricity and more!
