We visit classrooms and homeschool groups, virtually and in-person, from middle school to high school with curriculum-aligned Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) activities. Our volunteers typically come in for a class period to do a hands-on/minds-on activity with your students. We also run larger, full-school events, bring students on to campus and are available to judge science fairs. Our volunteers come from a wide variety of educational backgrounds and can cover many different STEM-related topics.
Let's Talk Science Outreach at the University of Lethbridge proudly serves the schools within Lethbridge (School District No. 51) and surrounding area (Horizon School Division No. 67, Palliser Regional Division No. 26, Westwind School Division No. 74 and Holy Spirit Roman Catholic Separate Regional Division No. 4).
If you are unsure of whether your school falls under any of these divisions, or are outside of these divisions and would like to discuss a possible visit from our team, please don’t hesitate to ask.
We are also very interested in rural outreach in Southern Alberta. Please get in touch to discuss whether a volunteer is available to conduct an activity at your school near Lethbridge.
