Let’s Talk Science Volunteer at the University of New Brunswick, Fredericton Campus

Esther’s time interacting and engaging with younger students takes her back to a time of always being curious, genuine and happy for every little thing!

Time volunteering with Let’s Talk Science: 2 years

Area of study: Bachelor of Science – Biology-Chemistry

Inspirational Moment: I was very nervous to be virtually reading a book to students during Science Literacy Week. Part of this nervousness came from not being able to interact with the students while we were reading. After finishing the book, however, a message from a student’s guardian saying, “You did so great that you sounded like a teacher!” really made that day special for me.

Favourite Let’s Talk Science volunteering activity: Geology Rockstars

Why do you volunteer with Let’s Talk Science?: Interacting and engaging with younger students takes me back to the time when I was their age, always being curious, genuine and happy for every little thing.
