SUDBURY – As part of its end-of-year science blow-out, Cambrian College’s Let’s Talk Science team will visit several local elementary schools during the next two weeks to share ideas and innovation with students in grades seven and eight.
“Science may be considered intimidating and, as a result, youth may put it on the back burner,” says Catherine Poulton, Cambrian’s Student Success Advisor. “But the end-of-year blow-out is a fun, rewarding and meaningful event as we head into the summer months.”
Let’s Talk Science is a national, award-winning, charitable organization that brings science to students in a fun, hands-on, minds-on way. Students from Cambrian College and Laurentian University have developed the outreach program, which includes a variety of challenges to engage students in kid-friendly activities that explore science, technology, engineering and math.
Activities run from 10-11:30 a.m. (outdoors, weather permitting) and include bottle rockets, exploding bags, ice cream-making, a vortex gun, and an obstacle race. The program is funded by the School College Work Initiative.
The outreach team will visit the following schools:
|Algonquin Public School||June 18|
|Lansdowne Public School||June 19|
|Notre Dame de la Merci||June 23|
|St. James Catholic Elementary School||June 24|
|St. Raphael Catholic Elementary School||June 25|
|Princess Anne Public School||June 26|
