Virtual After School STEM Club for Grades 7-9 Students Begins!

On Wednesday Dec 1st, a group of Grade 7-9 Students participated in the first of six Virtual After School Stem Classes offered in partnership with Let’s Talk Science! 

In this introductory lesson, Nicholas Butt, Outreach Coordinator for Let’s Talk Science and special guests; Dhruvi and Ahlam, Cambrian College students from the Dental Hygiene Program led the students in a Paper Flyer STEM activity.  

The students learned how the four forces; gravity, thrust, lift and drag create the aerodynamics of flight. Following, students had the opportunity to design, build, test, and re-adjusted their own paper gliders. 

Each week, Let’s Talk Science, features a different hands-on activity using minimal, easy-to-find materials.  Students are given the chance to learn from and ask questions to inspiring STEM role models. In addition, a prize is drawn at the end of each class and  students earn an entry per session attended, for a chance to win a grand prize in June! 

There is still time to Register for the next five interactive and fun sessions! You only need to register once to be able to participate in all of the classes. Please note, you must register the Monday before the next session in order to receive all the supplies delivered to your school on time. For more information  about participating in this activity contact:
