Let’s Talk Science’s suite of FREE K – 12 online and outreach programs focus on enhancing science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education in the classroom using relevant, bilingual, and curriculum aligned Canadian developed content.
Just to give you a taste of what each program has to offer:
- IdeaPark/Sentier D’Idees is collection of free educator resources and planning tools to support a skills based, co-constructed, learning environment through STEM and is best suited for an early years to Grade 3 classroom. The “I wonder if it floats?” investigation is a great way to encourage inquiry and exploration in the classroom.
- TomatosphereTM/TomatosphereMC is a free program where Kindergarten to Grade 12 students across Canada use "space" tomato seeds to investigate the effects of outer space on seed germination. Operated by Let’s Talk Science, Tomatosphere™ teaches students the skills and processes of scientific experimentation and inquiry. FREE seeds are still available for spring planting – all educators need to do is sign up and order online at Tomatosphere.letstalkscience.ca
- CurioCity/CurioCite is an educator’s go-to for free, curriculum-based, classroom-ready resources for Grades 8-12 (Secondary II-V) on a variety of STEM related topics. Not only can educators and students read articles on relevant STEM subjects, they can also enjoy a series of 360-degree videos and STEM related career profiles showcasing what it’s like to be in a mine, a motion animation studio and a flying a helicopter. Additional information is also available on symposiums offered through our University based outreach sites across the country and classroom action projects, like our Fish Market Survey that allows students to become citizen scientists.
Let’s Talk Science offers are bilingual, FREE and made in Canada.
