Take part in public outreach events this March

2016-03-01 | Events, News & Events

With the arrival of March, many are looking forward to the promise of spring-like weather and upcoming holidays. Children, youth and educators across Canada are also looking forward to a week break from school!

For the Let’s Talk Science Outreach volunteers, this opens doors, getting out into the community to take part in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM), exploration outside of the classroom setting. Our volunteers engage all ages during public events throughout the year.

Listed below are some of the March events that Let’s Talk Science Outreach is taking part in. For more details or to find out what is happening in your region, connect with your local Outreach program.
