“The Science of Science: The Realities of a Science Career”
Presented by Dr. Adriana Bankston
September 12, 2017
6:00 P.M. to 7:00 P.M.
AT ST. MATTHEWS MELLOW MUSHROOM – 3922 SHELBYVILLE RD

Many smart students like yourselves pursue science as a career, but aren’t necessarily prepared for the realities of this field. Dr. Bankston will share her journey in science from a young age, leading up to her current studies of the scientific system at the non-profit organization Future of Research (FoR). She will offer examples of specific research studies she has performed with FoR, and discuss how we could improve the system to benefit the next generation of scientists. Her presentation will also highlight non-profit organizations as potential avenues for professional and career development in science.

STEMinar is a monthly STEM presentation for teens, by teens, and presented in part by Kentucky Science Center. These dialogues are content-driven and presented by STEM professionals active in local research.

Each event is geared towards students in Middle and High School, but open to undergraduate students and families of all ages.

No need to RSVP. STEMinar is free and open to the public.
