Let's Talk Science Outreach Let's Talk Science (LTS) is a national charitable organization focused on supporting children and young adults through education and outreach.
LTS is scientifically literate and globally competitive through innovative educational programs, research and advocacy. Founded in 1991 at the University of Western Ontario, now McMaster University is among over 40 host universities and colleges across Canada participating actively in promoting science literacy and awareness through the Let's Talk Science ideology. Additionally, through other provincial partnerships, Let's Talk Science programs reach a wide audience nationally, and creates unique hands on activities that engage students from kindergarten to grade 12, more than half of whom are girls. Let's Talk Science strives to improve Science literacy through leadership, innovative educational programs, research and advocacy. We motivate and empower youth to use science, technology and engineering to develop critical skills, knowledge and attitudes needed to thrive in our world. In addition, our research has shown that children become more interested in STEM fields after attending LTS events. They are more aware of the number of jobs that require STEM knowledge, and they recognize that their career prospects can be improved through STEM education even if they choose not to pursue a STEM field. At our local site, programming is organized burberry online shop by local site coordinators. Local coordination allows us to better cater to our community's specific needs while being supported by the national team.
