With expertise in bridging science, education and learning, Let's Talk Science provides clients with sound science-based programming founded in educational theory.
The custom services we offer include:
Program Evaluation: We worked with the Canadian branch of a global organization to incorporate science and technology into their standardized education curriculum which is delivered to high-needs families in urban centers. We have also been hired to assess their curriculum, lead focus groups, and develop appropriate program material for their implementation.
Feasibility Studies: We developed a comprehensive business plan for a province-wide outreach project for a mobile biotechnology laboratory. Examined the project’s feasibility and designed a multi-year program that would engage regional stakeholders. Conducted background research, developed an RFP for construction, designed an operating platform, and created curriculum-aligned programming.
Training Programs: We were funded to create a science outreach training package to help scientists, engineers and technology professionals communicate science to the general public. We wrote, produced and managed the production of the resources including facilitator manual, participant guide and multi-media DVD in addition to being hired to deliver workshops to scientists nationally.
Research and Advocacy: In addition to advocating for science literacy, we are committed to understanding the impact and outcomes of our work. For example, our research shows that regular participation in quality science programs builds foundation skills such as communication, team work, and information management. Over the years we have completed numerous studies, sharing our findings in many venues. Let’s Talk Science is also the lead agency and a founding member of the Science and Technology Awareness Network (STAN).
Consulting Services and Resource Development: We developed a print resource about food safety for older adults and hands-on application for use at large trade shows. We have also created an interactive biotechnology CD for youth for distribution to all delegates at an international biotechnology conference.
