About this Event

The 2021 Challenge will be virtual!

The Let’s Talk Science Challenge is a competitive enrichment program offered to Grades 6-8 students with Let’s Talk Science Outreach volunteers across Canada.

Parents, educators or caregivers are invited to register their youth to participate individually, as a small group or as a whole class!

This free, fun-filled program includes an exciting question and answer competition and a hands-on, engineering challenge to inspire students to engage in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) learning.

New Registration Information for 2021

This year will look a bit different than the Challenge you're used to! Thanks to our virtual platform, there's no limit to the number of teams registered and we've expanded the definition of "team" to allow for registrations of individual students or up to an entire class.

When registering, simply indicate the number of students you're registering for each grade. You will be contacted at a later date with more information and asked to confirm teams in January 2021.

If you want to register for the Challenge in French, you can! Register for both programs by filling out the registration form for le Défi Parlons sciences here.

What happens at the Challenge?

The 2021 Let's Talk Science Challenge will take place between February 15th and the end of May. You're welcome to participate in as many or as few events as you like!

What you can look forward to:

  • Join our Let's Talk Science quiz host for 10 interactive, weekly live quizzes.
  • Practice your design and build skills with 8 hands-on design challenges.
  • An extra fun, half-day final event in May where you'll compete with your team against students from across Canada
  • A final engineering challenge where you'll put the skills you learned during our design challenges to the test!
  • Options to fit into your schedule! Live events will have multiple screenings and time zones and youth will have plenty of time to complete activities that aren't live at their own pace.

The Let's Talk Science Challenge team is committed to ensuring our activities can be accessible and adapted to all youth across Canada.
