Look who's on the Sci-Port page! This is to promote the activities several local scientists (including myself) will be presenting to the public about our research this Saturday! There will be lots of other cool stuff going on as well, so it will be a great day to come and bring your kids! (or just yourself if you don't have kids :)

"As scientists we tend to get frustrated with the public for not understanding all of the technology that is now integrated into every aspect of our daily lives, but I am of the opinion that the burden should fall more to us to try and make our work more accessible to the public." - Dr. Rebecca Murphy, Sci-Port's STEM Communications Institute

Interact with Rebecca and other scientists of Sci-Port's STEM Communications Institute this Saturday, March 21 at Sci-Port's Scientist Spotlight Series. www.sciport.org/events for more info.
