Yousfi Nawres, Let’s Talk Science Outreach volunteer at Université de Moncton
At one of our newest Outreach locations, Université de Moncton, our volunteers are already hard at work (and play).
Time volunteering with Let’s Talk Science: Almost one week.
Area of study: Civil engineering
Inspirational Moment: At a Skills Canada event, a 91 year old man in a wheel chair asked to try our virtual reality videos. He really enjoyed the experience - it seemed to bring him back to childhood.
Favourite Let’s Talk Science volunteering activity: Using games to do youth outreach.
Why do you volunteer with Let’s Talk Science? I do a lot of volunteer work and really enjoy working with children. Through my volunteer work with Let’s Talk Science, I use my scientific knowledge and professional experiences to talk to youth about the importance of engineering, science and technology in an easy to understand and fun way. It is always a pleasure to impart knowledge to someone who will soon contribute to society.
Fun fact: I really love team work, exchanging ideas, communicating with others and understanding how kids learn.
