Event Description

How does a curious little kid grow up to become a research scientist? Join us for an evening of fun and thought as we explore the elements that nurture creativity and careers in science. Our journey is through the second half of the 20th century to the present--from personal infancy and maturity to the infancy and maturity of the American space program. We'll go from the bottom of Old Faithful Geyser to the furthest reaches of the Solar System where geysers and erupt on Io, Triton and Enceladus, spraying ice and gases toward Jupiter, Neptune and Saturn
