XSTEM Science & Engineering Symposium


Thursday, April 14, 2016

For our second annual trip the XSTEM Science Symposium at the USA Science and Engineering Festival, we got to see a fascinating series of speakers, including a 20-year old MIT student working on the CRISPR/Cas system for editing DNA, a marine biologist studying coral bleaching, a quantum physicist, and Nobel Prize winning researcher Dr. Carol Greider. Students had the opportunities to ask questions about their research and their experiences in scientific fields. It's not too often that you get to hear from an actual Nobel Prize winner about what inspires them!
