What does a Let’s Talk Science Outreach volunteer do?

Hands-on STEM in Classrooms and Communities, Virtually and In-person!

Let's Talk Science Outreach is a national, community-based program connecting educators and youth with outstanding volunteers to deliver a wide variety of meaningful STEM activities for children as young as three years old and youth up to Grade 12.

Locally, each Let’s Talk Science Outreach site offers unique hands-on workshops for community groups, libraries, summer camps, after-school programs and community festivals.

In order to ensure your safety, in-person outreach is postponed until further notice (some exceptions apply). However, most of our post-secondary sites are happy to offer virtual outreach!
