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.
Fight or Flight
Grown-ups are not the only ones who experience stress – kids get stressed too! In this workshop students will learn about the science behind what is happening in their bodies when they experience stress. They explore what happens in their nervous system, endocrine system and circulatory system when their brain detects stressful situations. To wrap up, students will discuss some of the ways to reduce stress in their lives. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to obtain the full facilitator manual.
