This creates a unique opportunity for discussion and questions. The scientists will share the values and rewards of their careers, encourage proper academic preparation, motivate by personal example, and break down racial and gender stereotypes and barriers in science.Additional components of this weekend will include hands on activities, free give-a-ways and entertainment.
