Preparing For The Virtual Event

Materials needed for experiments may vary. We suggest you join the program with at least paper and pen.

Have a positive attitude

Science is all about trial and error. Be ready to celebrate your successes and learn from your mistakes.

Take part in the conversation

Some programming will be pre-recorded other program components will be live. For the live sessions you will have the opportunity to ask questions of your presenters. If you are not able to communicate directly with the presenter, share your ideas and your questions with someone you know and keep the conversation going!

Respect others

Listen and contribute without judgement, be open-minded and ready to admit that you may be wrong. Be humble, no one knows everything!
