Let's Talk Science: Making Science Education Exciting, Relevant and Rewarding (2001)

Let’s Talk Science (LTS) is a national charitable organization that works to improve scientific literacy through innovative educational programs, research, and advocacy.

LTS began in 1991as an outreach project that paired 10 graduate students from the University of Western Ontario with teachers in local schools to raise awareness of science. Now, it reaches more 100,000 youth and educators every year.

The organization is committed to understanding how people learn science, and seeks ways to continuously improve its science workshops, programs, and conferences. Its underlying premise is that not only is science important and interesting, it is also fun.

Its activities include supporting and supplementing existing science curricula by offering resources, training, and structured learning paths to youth and educators; offering youth meaningful and appropriate science learning experiences; offering educators the knowledge, tools, activities, and learning opportunities needed to affect their students’ science literacy; and offering young and up-and-coming scientists an opportunity to communicate the benefits of science literacy to children through its volunteer programs.
