Zooming with a Scientist - Irene Sahinidis '19
Beginning three summers ago (2018), the Biology Department started a summer Dinner with a Scientist series where we invited a local scientist to speak to a small group of summer students over dinner. In the spirit of this series, we continued with the series this summer in the form of a Zooming with a Scientist series. This series of Zoom seminars are intended to help students explore the fields available to them with a degree in STEM (other than medicine).
