Let's Talk Science Challenge

Wednesday, April 24, 2019 9:30 am - 2:30 pm EDT (GMT -04:00)

The Faculty of Science is hosting our 10th annual Let’s Talk Science Challenge – a science competition for Grade 6, 7 and 8 students. This event includes an exciting question and answer competition and a fun, hands-on design challenge that inspires students to acquire science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) knowledge beyond their curriculum. 

Challenge competitions are being held at 25 university and college campuses across Canada this year, and the Waterloo event is one of the largest. It’s a really fun day and a great way to wrap up the term, engaging with young science learners!
