The Let's Talk Science (LTS) student volunteers were at the Polo Park shopping mall on Saturday, 8 January 2011. LTS is a national volunteer program where university students promote science literacy for children through fun and exciting hands-on activities. They do this by partnering undergraduate and graduate student volunteers with teachers and by getting involved in community science outreach. Their intent is to motivate and empower youth to use science, technology and engineering to develop critical skills, knowledge and attitudes needed to thrive in our world! Their service is free to all teachers and students in Manitoba.
The LTS volunteers made a YouTube video of their Polo Park activites.
