Event description
Like TED Talks, but with space donuts! Students 13-18 yrs welcome. Short talks on subjects across STEM with interactive Q&A and mentorships.

About this Event

Each of our speakers is an expert in their field and will give a talk on subjects across "STEM" (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math), and will feature these talks: stem cells, ecotourism, environmental science, quantum physics, micro plastics and math. Speakers will tell you what inspired them to chose their area of study and the successes & failures they had along the way. Speakers will school you on the jobs you can pursue with your degree and what a typical work day looks like. Attendance can count towards graduation service hours and there will be mentorship opportunities.

The March 1st show will feature these speakers:

Kurtis Baute - Environmental Scientist & YouTube sensation.

Alison Muller - Stem Cells & Bio Printing

Alison is a Ph.D (Physiology) graduate from the University of Alberta. Alison loves presenting cutting edge medical research at Comic Expos, discussing science fiction inspired technology. She has been a guest on CBC Radio morning shows in Edmonton and Calgary, as well as appearing on Global Edmonton with a liquid nitrogen explosion! She recently founded aliscience.ca, a science communication blog that publishes different topics focused around medical science discoveries as well as the tools used in the research field.

Josh Silberg - Eco Tourism

Josh has researched everything from humpback whales to whale sharks to rockfish—he just couldn’t decide on one creature to study! After earning a Master’s of Resource and Environmental Management from Simon Fraser University, he joined the British Columbia-based Hakai Institute as the Science Communications Coordinator. Josh is also a Vancouver producer with The Story Collider, and hosts four shows per year where people perform true, personal stories about science. You can follow him on twitter @joshsilberg.

Dave Ng - Geneticist, Advanced Molecular Biology Lab (AMBL), UBC

David Ng is a geneticist, science educator, part time writer, and professor based at the Michael Smith Laboratories at the University of British Columbia.

Dave is partly responsible for the massive DNA helix emblazoned on his building’s facade and his Dad beat up Bruce Lee. Also a big unicorn fan.
