Let's Talk Science

Let’s Talk Science is a national charitable organization committed to building youth interest and engagement in science, engineering and technology. It is run out of over 50 university and college campuses across the country. At the U of T St. George site, we mobilize graduate student volunteers studying science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) to do hands-on/minds-on science activities with children and youth.

Due to COVID-19 all in-person outreach activities have been cancelled until further notice. Over the past year, Let’s Talk Science has been hard at work adapting our programming delivery approach to meet the needs of educators, caregivers and youth.
