Community Events

  • Nov.  1, 7:00 – 9:00 pm STEM Panel Discussion for the Film: Science Fair  This special free screening of the new National Geographic documentary SCIENCE FAIR follows nine high school students from around the world as they prepare for and attend the International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF). Already hard at work on problems such as the Zika virus and nerve tissue regeneration, these students (and their teachers) offer us an inspiring story about the passion and intelligence of our next generation of STEM researchers. Flyer for the Science Fair Film
