Let’s Talk Science

Let's Talk Science is an award-winning, national, charitable organization and they deliver science learning programs and services that turn children and youth on to science, keep them engaged in learning and develop their potential to become 21st century citizens, innovators and stewards.

As a parent or guardian, you are the first and most important educator in your child's life. You have the ability to nurture your child's desire to ask questions, seek answers, build skills and develop positive attitudes toward science — fostering learning that will last a lifetime.

Science at Home
At Let's Talk Science, we believe life-long learning begins at home. Whether you spend a day doing arts and crafts, baking, or taking your child on a 'field trip' in your community, it's easier than you think to spark science learning and engage your child in meaningful explorations that not only interest them (and you), but encourage them to keep asking important questions. Visit Science at Home for some quick and easy tips to get the whole family involved.
