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.
In partnership with Genome BC, Let’s Talk Science sends volunteers out to rural and remote regions of B.C. and the Yukon to engage students in hands-on science activities. Rural trips provide our volunteers with a unique opportunity to travel to different areas of B.C. and experience science outreach at its best. Visits occur throughout the year and are usually scheduled to include a weekend so that volunteers can make the most of the area they are visiting- whether it’s skiing Fernie Mountain or fishing in Haida Gwaii.
Areas we have visited in recent years include: Prince George, Wiliams Lake, Nelson, Castlegar, Cranbrook, Fernie, Sparwood, Comox, Tofino, the Sunshine Coast, the Yukon and Haida Gwaii.
