Let’s Talk Science Mentorship Program – Training Nov 10, 2016


For several years, Let’s Talk Science UBC has run a program in conjunction with local Vancouver schools to form mentoring relationships between high school students working on science fair projects and UBC students and researchers.

As a volunteer you will help all the way from designing research questions and their experiments to seeing them present their results at an actual Science Fair.

Project aims: Our aim is to show these kids how fantastic science is. We want to demonstrate that science is much more than just sitting in a lab with a white coat and a pipette and those scientists are awesome people like you!

Call for volunteers

Who: Undergraduate students, graduate students, postdocs and researchers

Location: Britannia Secondary School. Transportation costs (e.g. gas, car share) will be reimbursed.
