Meet a Scientist

Meet a Scientist

Discover current research from leading local organizations and the scientists themselves at Meet a Scientist. Meet a Scientist features local scientists from 1 – 4 p.m. who shares their work with you through hands-on activities and conversation. The program welcomes guests of all ages to interact with the scientists, who are more than happy to answer all sorts of questions relating to their current research. You might learn how scientists detect cancer-causing genes, how bugs fly, or how our brains remember what we’ve seen. Come back for new scientist guests each month.

This program exclusively features Pacific Science Center Science Communication Fellows. Fellows are local science-based professionals trained in communication and committed to sharing their love of science with you.
