When I came to SFU, it took me a while to get involved. In my second and third years, I came across a range of volunteer opportunities that didn’t require any prior experience, so I decided to take the plunge. At SFU Science Outreach we teach school-aged children about science by conducting experiments and coordinating activities on campus.

I enjoy my role tremendously, and as a full-time student I appreciate that it doesn’t require an overwhelming time commitment. It’s really nice to be a role model for the kids I teach. I think exposing the participants to science at such a young age is a great thing because for some it sparks a passion that may one day lead to a science-related educational or career pathway. The experience has helped me to develop communication and leadership skills by forcing me to step outside of my comfort zone.
