Let’s Talk Science

First Nations University of Canada in Regina, Saskatchewan is excited to continue its science outreach partnership with Let’s Talk Science. First Nations University of Canada is a leader in Indigenous education and we are excited to take part in Let’s Talk Science’s impactful STEM programming in Treaty 4 and Treaty 6 territories, and beyond.
