Who are we?

We live in an era in which science and technology are reshaping everything, from the way we work to the way we manage our lives and interact with the world. With fewer than 6 million children and youth, ages 3-17, in Canada, we cannot afford to leave any behind. Let’s Talk Science supports the development of all youth into creative, critical thinkers and knowledgeable citizens who are prepared to participate and thrive in a complex global environment.
