Time volunteering with Let’s Talk Science: One Year

Area of study: Medicine

Moment of inspiration: I remotely hosted the Mars Exploration activity in French for a school group in Manitoba. The activity went very well and the young people showed a real interest in the subject, but what particularly marked me was how interactive and bidirectional the activity was, despite the thousands of kilometres that separated us (my co-facilitator and I were in Quebec)!

Favourite Let’s Talk Science volunteering activity: Bacteria and Company

Why do you volunteer with Let’s Talk Science? There are two reasons why I volunteer for Let's Talk Science. First of all, I love to lead activities with young people. In fact, I have a child's heart deep down, so when I lead activities, I have as much fun as young people! Second, I'm convinced that science is an exciting and useful field, so I think that awakening to science is very important to inspire young people to explore the world of STEM.

Fun fact: I'm able to move my ears... with the help of my hands.
