UBC Let's Talk Science strives to improve science, technology, engineering and mathematics literacy through the outreach efforts of members of the research community at the University of British Columbia. Our volunteers work with youth from elementary and secondary schools to ignite science excitement and share their knowledge with eager young minds.
Build a microscope with students and see specimens up close! Teaches students skills in building (engineering) and biology. This lesson plan uses onion skin to look at individual cells and moss samples to find water bears. You can also ask students to bring in their own samples or take them outside to gather some from nature!
