Inspirational Moment: When I first heard about Let’s Talk Science, I was amazed that such a program exists and is readily available to people. The fact that the success of the program depends on volunteers encouraged me to participate. I find it a beautiful experience to partake knowledge and I am inspired by the Let’s Talk Science program managers in their effort to put in place an innovative learning experience for kids.

Favourite Let’s Talk Science volunteering activity: Definitely making the videos, especially when I have to go find the questions and answers myself!

Why do you volunteer with Let’s Talk Science?: I am grateful for the opportunity to participate in the innovative learning process of kids. It gives me the ability and means to interact with people, in this period of confinement and restrictions.

Fun fact: I do multiple shoots before sending the final one and I get my wife to review 😊
