Kingston, Ontario K7L 3N6For More InformationLet’s Talk Cancer is a series of full day symposia for secondary students that explores the use of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) as an integral part of cancer research. The goal of the event is to inspire the next generation of cancer researchers by showing them how STEM sciences play a role in cancer research and show students the impact of cancer research in their communities. The day includes seminars from research professionals along with a variety of activities designed to give students hands on opportunities to learn how cancer research is performed. Last year, approximately 200 students in grades 9 12 from Kingston and the surrounding area were in attendance. Our theme for this year is Personalized Medicine. We’re excited to teach you how treatments can be tailor designed for each patient. The students will meet STEM (science, technology,
engineering and math) leaders and engage in discussions that link classroom theory with practical problems and real world issues. All symposiums include dynamic speakers as well as hands on, minds on activities. Students will have the opportunity to interact with like minded peers and with Let’s Talk Science volunteers, who share their interest for STEM related topics.
