Let’s Talk Science Returns to PRJHSFOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

High Prairie, Alberta – Let’s Talk Science, an award-winning, national, charitable organization focused on education and outreach to support youth development, returned to Prairie River Junior High this month. The volunteers that come to our school bring science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) to life by sharing their passion and experiences.

On this visit to PRJHS, students learned about hydraulics and pulleys, structures and forces, and circuits. This was done through hands-on/minds-on learning on the Rube Goldberg Machine, a bridge building challenge, circuits powered by vegetables, and building the tallest tower for King Kong.

Neil Pereira, Science Teacher at PRJHS, stated that “Our kids have had a really good time working with the Let’s Talk Science staff. They really like the hands-on training.”

This is the third time that Let’s Talk Science has been to PRJHS. It’s just one of the ways that students at High Prairie School Division are taking part in STEM learning. Thank you to the team from Let’s Talk Science for providing valuable hands-on/minds-on learning for our students. Also, thank you to Shell Canada who provides funding to Let’s Talk Science to make these trips possible.
