Outdoor science class

This summer, Let’s Talk Science is inviting youth ages 9 to 11 years old (Grades 4 to 6) to spend time getting out of their seats, exploring their surroundings, and discovering the amazing world of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) during the Summer Daily Discovery series.

Join us weekly, for short daily activities and a new theme each week. These activities are hands-on and designed to be done at home, outside, or with family and friends using easy-to-find materials. Hosted by STEM role models from across Canada, the Daily Discovery series encourages children to be the innovators of tomorrow from the comfort of home.  

Note: while these activities are geared towards families, classes and community groups are also encouraged to participate.  

When you sign up, you'll receive an e-mail each day featuring a new hands-on STEM activity. There are no live sessions to join, so you can complete the activities whenever is most convenient for you. Material lists will be shared with you at the start of your discovery week.
