Inspirational Moment: I can’t think of one inspirational moment I’ve had volunteering with Let’s Talk Science. I think I’m always inspired in moments during a workshop when I get to see the kids having fun with their experiments or becoming genuinely astonished with something new they learned. As an educator to them, that fills me with so much joy.
