If you have ever
wondered what makes a scientist - this program is for you!  Within your 30-minute conversation with a scientist of your choice, you can ask them...when did they know they
wanted to be a scientist?
 How much did they have to study? Why do they do what they do? What was the grossest experiment
they’ve ever done?   And the many other questions that may run through your head!
Our Four University of Nebraska-Lincoln scientists are ready to
personally share their passion for science and their science careers
with your students and adult audiences. 
Within a 30-minute session your audience can speak with one of them about their research and science career paths.  Topics include fossils, algae, birds, rocks, and love for biology!  Speaking from their lab, outside with the birds, or surrounded by fossils, these scientists will describe what makes their work amazing.  Your audience then takes the lead with questions.

Within 30-minutes, you
will have a chat to remember.
