Our first session of Skype-a-Scientist is coming up TOMORROW, Thursday, June 24th. Join us from 1pm to 2pm at Pine Island City Hall as we chat with materials scientist and engineer Garrett McKeown Wessler about his work with solar panels and science experiments that can be done at home! Our scientist is prepared to answer all of your questions, so think of some good one to bring along!.

From their website: The mission of Skype a Scientist is simple, yet impactful: to make science accessible and fun through personal connections with scientists. We are an educational entity with a focus on connecting the general public with scientific disciplines in fun and meaningful ways, making science education available and engaging for everyone.
