Did you know that 5 out of 6 students in Canada don’t graduate high school with the courses required to apply for engineering? Or that only 17% of students in Canada complete Grade 12 physics?
An award-winning, national, charitable organization focused on education and outreach to support youth development, 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. To do this, we create and deliver unique learning programs and services that engage children, youth and educators in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) to support learning and skill development. Our programs, resources and services are provided at no cost to youth and educators and motivate and empower children and youth to fulfill their potential and prepare for their future careers and roles as citizens. Every donation makes a difference and allows us to continue our work – impacting youth in Canada and setting them up for success.
Since 1993, Let’s Talk Science has excited, inspired and engaged more than 9.5 million children, youth, educators and volunteers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).
Recognizing the social and economic barriers facing many children and youth in Canada, we strive to ensure equal access to our programs and resources for all youth, whether they live in rural, remote, urban, suburban, or indigenous communities. And with Indigenous Peoples significantly underrepresented in STEM-related careers, Let’s Talk Science offers meaningful programming that inspires Indigenous youth to see a future in STEM.
Through STEM education, we’re helping youth learn to take risks to develop the persistence to find innovative solutions to real-world problems and the competencies required to thrive in an ever-changing world. With approximately 6.5 million children and youth ages 3-17, we cannot afford to leave any behind in Canada.
