RockEDU’s Science Cafe Series for High School Students
RockEDU Presents: is a science cafe series including short talks by scientists, geared to a high school audience, followed by an opportunity to network with scientists and likeminded students.
Have you ever wondered where your water comes from? Or how you can light a room with the flick of a switch? Civil Engineering links every part of our world and is one of the oldest branches of engineering, dating back to when people first merged into permanent settlements. It can give you a roadmap to understanding our built environment, consisting of buildings, bridges, roads, subway systems, sewer and water tunnels, among other things.
Madeline Skoblik will join us from New York City Department of Design and Construction. In her talk she will share her experience working on infrastructure projects throughout all of the 5 Boroughs of New York.
All events will be on facebook live and archived to youtube.
Mark your calendar for the third Friday of every month!
The RockEDU Presents: series will be on a regular monthly schedule for all of the 2017-2018 school year.
