Frontiers for Young Minds Live Review at the Bay Area Science Festival

frontierforyoungminds

Frontiers for Young Minds is excited to announce its second live review event which will take place at the Chabot Space and Science Center as part of the Bay Area Science Festival. The team will be coming together once again to welcome our scientists who will have the difficult task of presenting their work to our panel of Young Reviewers.

This year, four papers will be presented to our panel of six curious young minds! The panel is made up of some of our most experienced Young Reviewers aged between 7 and 13. They will review the scientists’ presentations as well as their papers, and push the researchers to better explain their work and why it is important. Will our scientists succeed in translating their work and how will they react to the challenging questions they will face from our panel?

For a quick preview, check out what happened in last year’s event here where our panel explained the criteria used when deciding whether a paper should be accepted or not.

We hope to see you there!

I love science and sports. I play baseball and learn kung-fu. I love to do experiments to understand how science works. In the science – I enjoy space/astronomy and physics. I enjoy reading a lot – and hope to write lot of kids’ books. (I have started on three already). In my life, I want to invent something new and bring back to life something that is extinct – using DNA research.
