What’s it like to be a scientist or engineer? Find out in this special program where you can talk to real scientists and engineers and do the hands-on activities they’ve developed to showcase their work. Discover why they find STEM cool and exciting while learning about their research and interests.

Scheduled to participate are:

Dr. Andrew Magyar - Uncover the connection between nanotechnology and the art of stained glass windows. Learn about the technology that scientists today use to understand the nano world, and discover the special and unexpected properties found at the nanoscale.

Rohini Vishwanathan, PhD - Use chromatography to uncover the colors hidden within a green spinach leaf, and discover their significant connection to your eyes!


This event is led by scientists participating in our Science Communication Fellowship program, and is part of the Museums' participation in the Cambridge Science Festival.
