Let’s Talk Science is committed to developing youth who are creative, critical thinkers and knowledgeable citizens prepared to participate and thrive in a complex global environment.
Our world is rapidly changing and Canadian children and youth need to be curious, ask questions and be capable of challenging the status quo in order to succeed. In a world increasingly driven by innovation, the demand for people who can fill science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) - related jobs - will only continue to increase but the reality is that most Canadian students disengage from STEM courses before graduating high school.
Let's Talk Science is working to change this. We help Canadian youth build the skills they need for their - and Canada's - future success. Through STEM education we're helping youth learn to take risks, develop the persistence to find innovative solutions to real world problems, and the competencies required to thrive in an ever changing world. With fewer than 6 million children and youth, ages 3-17, in Canada, we cannot afford to leave any behind. And thanks to the generosity of our supporters across Canada we are having a positive impact.
An award-winning, national, charitable organization, Let’s Talk Science has provided engaging, evidence-based STEM programs for more than 25 years at no cost for Canadian youth and educators. Through the generous support of our partners and donors, we are able to provide educators with opportunities to discover and use effective learning strategies to develop and strengthen students’ questioning and problem-solving skills; and offer experiential and digital programs that engage youth in meaningful STEM learning.
Since its inception in 1993, Let’s Talk Science has impacted more than 8.5 million Canadian youth.
