Let’s Talk Science and Scouts Canada have joined forces to assist Scouts and Scouters with running STEM activities in their Sections. Let’s Talk Science is a national charitable organization that focuses on science education and outreach support to youth development. They create and deliver unique, accessible learning programs and services that engage children and youth in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).
With this partnership, Let’s Talk Science’s network of 3,500 trained volunteers, based at over 40 university and college campuses across Canada, will engage Scouting youth ages 5 to 17 in a wide variety of meaningful STEM-related learning experiences using real-world examples and exciting activities. Volunteers will work with Scout groups to provide mentorship, support and instruction for STEM projects, provide access to materials and university laboratories, and develop and implement activities that match the interests of the youth.
Sections and Groups looking for help when running STEM activities can easily request assistance from their local Let’s Talk Science Outreach site. A complete registry of all Canadian sites may be found online at: outreach.letstalkscience.ca.
