Looking for cool new ideas to keep your kids engaged and learning this summer? Let’s Talk Science offers free, fun, age-appropriate resources that develop a strong foundation in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM)—critical for a future shaped by innovation and complexity!

It goes without saying that COVID-19 has created unique challenges and an increased need for ways to engage children and youth. Throughout, Let’s Talk Science has been there to support educators, parents, and youth wherever learning has been taking place.

The Let’s Talk Science STEM at Home page offers activities and resources that don’t require a lab or classroom to support learning. Fun, curriculum-aligned resources are available in English and French and encourage kids to evolve their STEM skills and learn about various careers available to them through STEM learning. Activities encourage kids to look at the way the clouds move and talk about the shapes they see or explore the garden looking to see what critters they can find and listen to hear what sounds they make.

Hoping to inspire older kids? Watch fun, engaging videos and explore career profiles together at home. Help your child discover the broad range of careers that use STEM skills—from skilled trades to engineering to technical jobs in the music industry to health care professions. They will be amazed at the wide variety of career paths that involve (and even require!) STEM learning!

In a world increasingly dependent on science and innovation, today’s children and youth will require the skills and competencies offered through STEM to succeed as innovators and critical thinkers. No matter where learning is taking place, Let’s Talk Science is here to help you help them.
