The Sonia Bujold Initiative  is an outreach initiative established in 2021 by Ms. Sonia Bujold, a recent retiree from the McGill Department of Biology, to “reach out” and break the isolation that students, individuals living alone, and families experienced during the COVID-19 pandemic. The Initiative offers engaging and educational activities on the fascinating world of biology through a series of free online self-paced activity booklets for children and adults.  

The McGill Chapter of Let's Talk Science is a volunteer-based group of graduate and undergraduate students from a wide range of faculties at McGill University. Our volunteers deliver hands-on classroom presentations, host public STEM events, mentor for and evaluate projects at regional science fairs, and provide STEM outreach to a range of urban and indigenous schools!
