Let’s Talk Science kicked-started Preema Sarkar’s love of science into high gear. That’s how the third year biochemistry student at the University of New Brunswick (UNB) describes her first encounter with the Let’s Talk Science Outreach program. She was a high school student attending a national youth session in Ottawa where Let’s Talk Science was invited to talk to students.

“I think they did a couple of activities,” said Sarkar. “It was a chemistry-based experiment. The person who was presenting it made me feel really excited.”
