FREE and OPEN to Junior Academy of Science members and middle and high school students. Registration required. REGISTER HERE or call 314.533.8586.
Featured Speaker: Suzanne Lapi, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Radiology and Biomedical Engineering, Washington University School of Medicine
At a Teen Science Cafe, teens have the opportunity to interact with science professionals in an informal and relaxed setting. Teen Science Cafe is presented and powered by Junior Academy of Science members.
How small can you get? What does “nano” mean? Is nanotechnology already present in our everyday lives? What can it lead to in the future? Join us for the next Teen Science Cafe to find out! Dr. Suzanne Lapi from Washington University will talk about her work in nanotechnology, and you will even get to try some activities with objects that use real nanotechnology! Hear from Dr. Lapi about how she found her career in nanotechnology and about her current research in the production of novel radio isotopes for medicine and development of new radiopharmaceuticals for cancer imaging.
Parents, our teen leaders request that you please plan on waiting outside the program or dropping your student off.
