Let's Talk Science is a national charitable organization committed
to building youth interest and engagement in science, engineering and
technology (http://letstalkscience.ca/). At the U of T St. George site,
we mobilize graduate student volunteers studying science, engineering
and technology to dohands-on/minds-on science activities with
children and youth.

Through a newly developed partnership with the Graduate Professional
Skills program, hours logged for Let's Talk Science earn credits toward
the notation on a students' transcript recognizing professional
development. Volunteers can earn up to 8 of the 20 required credits
through offerings including our Science With Impact training,
science fair judging, career mentorship and hands-on activities. 

Last year, we had over 250 graduate student volunteers registered with
our program who logged over 2000 hours of outreach preparation and
presentation time this year.

This year, we want to expand our volunteer pool and are looking for
more graduate students from all areas of science and engineering
to become leaders of their field and take their knowledge to youth
via classroom visits and on-campus events, such as StemCellTalks,
Chemistry Day, Physiology Day, etc.
