Event description

Description

Join the Adler Planetarium Youth Leadership Council for our first-ever Science Speaks Chicago. This all-day event will feature sessions of short, dynamic talks by early-career STEM professionals, focusing on the speakers' work, research, and personal journeys. Our speakers include:

Abdel Halloway, Mathematical Ecology and Evolution
Ashley Walker,
Astrochemistry
Charlotte Haley, Astro Science and Statistics
Giovanna Rossi, Adler teen
Jack Morgan, Adler teen
Jennifer Moore, Chemistry
Katie Breivik, Astrophysics
Kennen Hutchison, Biology and Science Education
Mary Clare Greenlees, Adler teen
Mathew Perez-Neut, Biochemistry

Neda Bagheri, Computational Biology
Sadie Witkowski, Neuroscience
Schnaude Dorizan, Neuroscience
Shannon Gedey, Architecture
Sophie Shrand, Science Education

Science Speaks Chicago aims to connect young Chicagoans (ages 11 to 21) with new role models in the sciences. The talks will be focused not only on speaker's research and work in STEM, but also their personal stories of how they got to where they are today. Talks will be hosted in the Adler’s Johnson Star Theater, and more informal “poster sessions” will be hosted throughout the day elsewhere in the museum.

Free registration is open to young people ages 11 to 21 and one guest, and includes access to the event and general admission to the Planetarium. School and organization groups interested in attending this event should contact youthprograms@adlerplanetarium.org.
