Creating opportunities through science

An instructor in The University of Winnipeg's Faculty of Science, Beata Biernacka has devoted herself to making science accessible, interesting, and relevant to young people, and most notably, to inner-city youth.

Biernacka is the coordinator of UWinnipeg's Let's Talk Science outreach program that inspires children to learn more about the world and opens the door to a lifetime of discovery and inquiry.

Since 2003, Biernacka has been working to grow the program, matching inner-city teachers with UWinnipeg students who then visit their classes to present science experiments. The program also brings students and their teachers onto the University's campus to observe how scientists conduct scientific inquiries.
