The necessity for clear science communication extends far beyond the laboratory. It impacts all of us daily, especially when it comes to our health. Join us for a collegial conversation between Lisa Fitzpatrick and Megan Ranney as they discuss their most insightful experiences and biggest aha moments as public health care practitioners and advocates. They will reflect on lessons learned during the pandemic and share their innovative strategies for self-care.
Eugenia Cheng will take a scalpel to politics, privilege, sexism and other real-world situations, as she demonstrates how math can help us find truth and clarity without losing nuance.
Cheng holds a Ph.D. in pure mathematics from the University of Cambridge and is currently Scientist in Residence at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Alongside her research in Category Theory and undergraduate teaching, her aim is to rid the world of "math phobia." Her most recent book, "The Art of Logic in an Illogical World" was published in 2018.

Inventing Tomorrow follows six young scientists from Indonesia, Hawaii, India and Mexico as they tackle some of the most complex environmental issues facing humanity today – right in their own backyards. Each student is preparing original scientific research that he or she will defend at ISEF, the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair. Framed against the backdrop of the severe environmental threats we now face, we immerse the audience in a global view of the planetary crisis, through the eyes of the generation that will be affected by it most.
The moderated panel discussion will feature the filmmakers Laura Nix (director), Melanie Miller (producer), and Julie Goldman (executive producer). A reception will follow.
