Let's Talk Science (LTS) UNBSJ is an outreach program that provides creative science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) activities to the youth of Saint John, New Brunswick and the surrounding area.
Their goal is to provide fun educational learning for youth aimed to entice students to continue education or careers in the STEM field.
Let's Talk Science has ongoing virtual outreach with schools from the greater Saint John area, as well as a new exciting event this year. This event will focus on mentorship of Indigenous youth through development of a science fair project. The science fair will take place in March 2022 at the Alaqsite'w Gitpu school in Quebec.
The volunteer's responsibility will be to support and mentor students on the scientific method, steps of scientific experiments, creating and building the science project, and adhering to the rules of the contest.
