Remember that awful biology class where you had to memorize a million Latin names? Did you struggle to balance chemistry equations and swear never to do that again? MIT scientists Tyler Dewitt (G, Biology), Raoul Correa (G, Chemistry), Kate Goldstein, Sabine Hauert, Filippo Menolascina, Tal Danino, and Eben Cross will share their most memorable moments from high school science class on Wednesday, April 17th, 2013, from 6:00pm to 8:00pm at the MIT Museum. They will also describe how those lessons continue to shape their research careers! Tonight, allow yourself to flash back to high school, but this time with friends, acquaintances, and drink, to share those science experiences with good humor. For a sneak peak at what to expect, check out Tyler’s TEDx talk. Admission is free. This event is recommended for older teens and adults. Cash bar for ages 21+. Check out the Facebook page.
