This summer, Let’s Talk Science is inviting children aged 9-11 years old (Grades 4-6) 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 for a video series featuring short daily activity videos 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 mentors from colleges and universities 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 toward families, classes and community groups are also welcome to participate.  

Each day, participants will receive an email with a video demonstration and description of a fun, hands-on STEM activity for them to do at home. There are no live sessions to join, so you can watch the video and complete the activities whenever is most convenient for you. Material lists will be shared with you by email one week in advance of your session.
