Aspiring young scientists (and their parents, too) are invited to meet the pros at an upcoming event at the Gwinnett Environmental and Heritage Center near Buford.
The center’s annual Meet a Scientist is scheduled for Friday, April 25 from 5:30 p.m. to 9 p.m.
Scientists will represent several professions: pharmacy, veterinary medicine, computer engineering, hydrology, global information systems and more.
“This is your chance to meet scientists from across the community and learn all about the important work that they do,” said Jason West, GEHC director of programming. “You can determine what really makes a scientist tick and enjoy some hands-on science.”
Highlights include animal’s x-ray, testing water with an aquatic engineer, exploring the world of computers and capturing macro invertebrates! In addition, they will also enjoy learning about the physics behind the fun by experiencing the Amusement Park Science exhibit, which is currently on display at the GEHC.
