Participants get creative at last year's science with impact workshop.UNB profs. and students will learn to think outside the box to engage youth about the fascinating areas of science.

The science with impact workshop will be held on Friday, Feb. 1, at Marshall D’Avray Hall, Room 334-1, UNB Fredericton, at 9 a.m.-12 p.m.

Funded by The Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), the workshop provides a hands-on outreach-training workshop for university scientists, researchers, students and professionals. Developed and facilitated by Let’s Talk Science, the workshop provides participants with effective strategies to plan and conduct science, technology, engineering and math outreach with all age groups of youth in a variety of settings.
