Let's Talk Science at Dalhousie University

Welcome to our local web space. At Let's Talk Science, we connect educators and youth with outstanding volunteers to deliver a wide variety of meaningful science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) learning experiences in both school and community settings. 

Educator Testimonials

We're working hard to help bring fun, enriching scientific experiences to students. Don't just take our word for it, read these comments collected from teachers in the Halifax Regional Municipality:

"Well planned - well run! The open ended question allowed for creativity on the part of the students - we observed original thought. :)"

"Let's Talk Science is great. I'm very impressed with the communication and commitment of the staff and volunteers."

"It was so nice for the students to have a presenter come in to talk about a subject we had already learned about in class. They were able to see DNA and it made the whole process more 'real' for them. The Let's Talk Science presentations are an experience that I always look forward to, for my students, each year. My students gain a lot from the presentations and I have learned a great deal in the process as well. It is always interesting to hear about new studies and to see how to present a topic in a new way. I find the program to be very well organized and it offers a lot to the classroom experience. I would highly recommend this program to my colleagues and would encourage DAL to continue with this exceptional program offered to the school system. Thanks Let's Talk Science!"

"I think it is a great learning experience all around. Everyone benefits. The children certainly came away from the lesson with new ideas and they could relate to [the two volunteers] as well. It is the first time that I have used the program and I am very impressed."

"It is great to have someone with a lot of knowledge to come in and kick start or to complement a Science unit. I'm looking forward to working with [the volunteer] again in 2006. Seeing someone be positive and passionate about a subject just gets the old blood going."

"[Our Let's Talk Science volunteer] was able to impart a lot of information in a fun and hands-on kind of way which is extremely important for students of all ages. Once you have them involved in the learning process, teaching is a pleasure. [She] was wonderful."

"[Our Let's Talk Science volunteer] was very well organized and had the main lesson plus 3 different enrichment activities for the students. Very impressive. Everything was at their level, and provided some stretch with the enrichment activities."

Join Us at Let’s Talk Science

Our Outreach program volunteers pass on their passion for STEM to youth in Canada. They shatter negative stereotypes and inspire children and youth to become engaged in STEM learning. Through Let’s Talk Science Outreach, we support educators and help youth form positive attitudes towards the role that STEM plays in their lives and futures.
