We Want You to Go to Class!
Our students desperately need to have some face to face time with scientists and engineers who are doing amazing things to make their world a better place. That means you guys! From time to time, you may be invited to give a presentation on your work to kids in some context- and we want to make it easier for you. You might even reach out yourself to your local school and offer to come in and give a talk.
