We make science fun and interesting

Maybe Science isn’t exactly what you’d call your favourite subject, and you’re not really sure how it relates to your life outside of school.

Or maybe you’re a science and tech enthusiast who loves learning cool new facts and doing hands-on science activities at home.

Either way, Let’s Talk Science will definitely get you (or keep you) interested in science, engineering and technology and here’s why...

CurioCity
If you’ve ever wondered how the things in your life work — from your cell phone and digital camera to tanning lotion and teeth whitening gel — you can get the answers from our experts at ExploreCurioCity.org. CurioCity is a website where you can explore the science, engineering and technology in your life through an interactive, interest-based platform.

Every week, the website is updated with new articles that reveal the science behind topics that matter to you: current events, sports, health, technology and entertainment.

How do steroids work and why are they bad for you? Can two people really lock braces while kissing? Why do hockey players tape their sticks before a game? Can you get tennis elbow from playing video games?

Visit CurioCity to find out.

 

Activities database
Looking for science experiment ideas? Let’s Talk Science has a huge database of hands-on activities you can try at home. Check it out.

 

Classroom visits
Want to spice up some of your science classes? Ask your teacher to invite a Let’s Talk Science Outreach volunteer to your classroom to do some hands-on activities. We guarantee you’ll learn something — and have fun too.

Know a lot of science facts? Like the name of the large muscle that pushes on the lungs of a turtle? (hint: it’s not a diaphragm).

Want to test your knowledge against other kids your age? If you’re in Grade 6, 7, or 8, you can join a team at your school to take part in the Let's Talk Science Challenge and go head to head in a jeopardy-style competition. You can increase your knowledge, win prizes and take home a medal.
