Today’s BSR guest post comes from Charina Choi.
You know those moments when you are thrilled to be a scientist or engineer? Like when you build an instrument that starts to work as designed, or see single atoms with an electron microscope, or hear the most inspirational research talk. Sciimpact is a conference aimed at creating some of these moments for students from underserved Bay Area high schools. This one-day event will feature diverse dynamic speakers, a panel discussion, hands-on experiments, and a campus tour of UC Berkeley.
As a scientist or engineer, you can be an integral part of this conference by eating lunch with students, chatting about your work and career path, guiding students to their breakout activities, or taking students on a campus tour. We are also looking for volunteers to help with registration, setup, and takedown. If any of this sounds like something you’d enjoy, contact Charina at firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up. It would be awesome to have you there.
Sciimpact takes place on April 6, 2013 from 9:30am – 4:30pm at Stanley Hall. For more information, visit www.sciimpact.org.
