How do scientists go from OMG to PhD? How do they turn their passion for science into their profession? What advice do they have for future scientists? If you are a 5th-12th grade student, undergraduate, teacher or parent, join us to ask these questions and more in a Q&A session with our weekly Seminar speakers on Wednesdays from 2-2:30 PM.

Parents must give permission for children under 18 to participate. 

Register to attend here.
