Negin champions science with
Let’s Talk Science McMaster
Negin inspires the next generation of scientists as a member of Let's Talk Science at McMaster. Let's Talk Science is an award-winning national charity focused on education and otureach to support youth development. Let's Talk Science creates and delivers unique learning programs and services that engage children, youth and educators in science, technology, engineering and mathematics from kingergarten to Grade 12. McMaster joined with Let's Talk Science in 1997 and has one of the largest university chapters with hundreds of student volunteers from the Faculties of Science, Engineering and Health Sciences.
Effective science outreach is not only fun and rewarding - it's also extremely important for sustainable development of our society. Cultivating natural curiosity and scientific literacy in youth is essential for developing critical thinking and better decision-making. Through effective STEM education, scientific concepts become relatable in real-world context which encourages outside-of-classroom learning and continuous growth. Moreover, communicating science through activities is a great way for new scientists to gain a deeper understanding of the core scientific concept and inspire innovation through its applications.
