Career/Research Talks|Science Posse

Why should I become a scientist?

Science Posse Fellows' Research/Career Talks show students that scientist are real people who do interesting research and give then a glimpse of the opportunity awaiting them in STEM fields!

  • Research and career talks are offered to middle and high school students.
  • Talks can be adjusted to last between 15 to 30 minutes. (Longer talks will include more hands-on activities for students.)
  • Talks must be limited  to 15-30 students to facilitate interaction between the Fellow and students. (We are able to accommodate classes larger than this by splitting the students and doing several research talks concurrently).

The Life of A Mechanical Engineer presented to students at Wyoming STARBASE Academy

The Science Posse is a great vehicle to get "real life scientists" into classrooms. Students see that what their science teachers have been telling them in class happens in the real world, and that it can be a career. ~Jamie Crait, Former Graduate Fellow
