The Faculty of Science is pleased to provide the following ways of exploring science and discovering innovation:

Let's Talk Science Outreach

Let’s Talk Science provides a unique opportunity for you to invite a university student volunteer into your classroom to conduct curriculum-aligned, hands-on science activities with your students at no cost to you or your school. We have a wide variety of activities developed both by Let's Talk Science national office and by Science Outreach here at the University of Waterloo, that are sure to engage students in kindergarten through Grade 11. Please visit or contact Heather Neufeld for more information:

The Let's Talk Science Challenge

This enrichment event is an exciting question and answer competition with fun, hands-on design challenges that inspires Grade 6, 7 and 8 students to acquire science knowledge beyond their curriculum. Participants work in teams of four to study the Let's Talk Science Challenge Handbook, which covers a tremendous range of science material. All this preparation culminates in a one day event, with parents and classmates invited to cheer on their teams! Prizes are awarded to the winners and participation certificates are awarded to all team members.

The University of Waterloo will host a Let's Talk Science Challenge on April 25, 2014. Visit for more information and to register a team.
