Young Scientists and Educators Lecture Series

Young Young Scientists and Educators Lecture Series

In science and education alike, the transition from student to teacher, from amateur to expert, is a continuum, and no one becomes an expert overnight. And yet, starting this journey is intimidating, because the path seems so unfathomably long and difficult. This is why having a role model -- someone on the path who you can relate to -- is so essential.

This is why SigmaCamp is starting the Young Scientists and Educators Lecture Series. This series will feature science lectures by younger staff members at Sigma, from first-year college students to PhD students. This will be a monthly event intended for an audience 12-years-old and up. The lecture topics will range from physics to biology and mathematics. 

The first event of the series will take place on Monday, November 29th, at 6:00PM at the Simons Center for Geometry and Physics, Stony Brook University. The event is open to everyone: parents and children 12+ years old.
