Next Talk: Jan 11, 2014, 1 Pimentel Hall, UC Berkeley, Prof. Susan Lynch;
"Your Microbiome--in Health and Disease"
The University of California's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) invites high school students and their classroom teachers to Nano-High, a series of Saturday morning lectures focused on the cutting-edge scientific issues of the day, from molecular medicine to nanoscience, from climate change to astrophysics, from solar energy to the math behind Sully, Remy and Buzz Lightyear. Our speakers are internationally renowned LBNL senior scientists, UC Berkeley Professors, and distinguished visiting scientists known not only for their scientific accomplishments in the subjects they will talk about, but also for their ability to talk to non-expert audiences. Nano-High talks are aimed at all high school students, from those already committed to careers in science, to those committed to poetry, history or philosophy, to those committed to figuring out what they want to do. No science background is required to understand these carefully crafted presentations. Nano-High attendees can also meet and talk with the speakers after the talks--and even have a photo-op.
