Scientist Spotlight


Discover how science works alongside the pros at Scientist Spotlight. This program happens nearly every month and is always held on the first Saturday. Scientist Spotlight features 2 rounds (11 a.m.-2 p.m. and 2 p.m.-5 p.m.) of local scientists who share their work with you through hands-on activities and conversation. Learn how scientists detect cancer-causing genes, estimate fish populations, investigate the geology of Mars, and more.
