Hands-on STEM in Classrooms and Communities, Virtually and In-person!

Let's Talk Science Outreach is a national, community-based program connecting educators and youth and community organizations with outstanding volunteers to deliver a wide variety of meaningful STEM activities for children as young as three years old and youth up to Grade 12.

Let’s Talk Science Outreach sites located across Canada offer unique, customized STEM based hands-on workshops, symposium and events for local classrooms, community groups, libraries, summer camps, after-school programs and community festivals.

At this time, Let’s Talk Science in-person outreach visits are starting to resume, but are still limited. Virtual outreach will remain available indefinitely through our national programming and many of our university and college site partners.
