1. This live program begins with a brief introduction to the topic and scientist(s) being interviewed.
2. We follow along as Dr. Melanie Peffer shares with us information about the human brain and ways in which we can boost our learning ability using strategies and learning science!
3. We conclude the program with time for students to ask questions on camera or via open chat (Zoom webinar format).
-Learn more about careers in the STEM/science world
-Ask questions and engage with current scientists in real-time
-Explore a new science content area (astronomy/space science)
-Be empowered to see how STEM relates to their own lives; practice thinking critically about the Nature of Science (NOS)
