The Group's Purpose:
At Let's Talk Science Outreach, we connect educators and youth with outstanding volunteers to deliver a wide variety of meaningful science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) learning experiences in both school and community settings.

Let’s Talk Science Outreach was founded in 1991 at the University of Western Ontario. Presently, McMaster University is among over 40 host universities and colleges across Canada actively participating in promoting science literacy and awareness through unique hands-on and minds-on activities that engage students from kindergarten to grade 12.

Let's Talk Science Outreach at McMaster University and our 80 volunteers strive to improve science literacy through leadership, innovative educational programs, research and advocacy. During the 2015-2016 school year our volunteers…
  • - Provided hands-on science activities to 8122 children.
  • - Led 188 FREE activities in Hamilton and its surrounding areas, including Brantford, Simcoe, Burlington, Oakville, and the Six Nations of the Grand River Reserve.

How to Help:
Let’s Talk Science Outreach is a national, not-for-profit organization. As such, we rely on the generosity of corporations, foundations, government and individuals – like you – to help us keep our programs free and accessible to all.

This school year, we were very excited to provide our community with an updated Kit Library containing 25 NEW and exciting activities that complement the Ontario Elementary and Secondary School Science Curriculum. Several of these activities would be more engaging and exciting for students if we were able to purchase new microscopes to visualize real insect, animal and human tissue specimens that we have acquired.

Please consider making a donation towards two new microscopes for Let’s Talk Science Outreach at McMaster University so that we may continue to make a difference in the lives of children and youth in our community.
