Start Talking Science is an unprecedented opportunity for you to meet local scientists and academics and discuss their groundbreaking research. Interested in dark matter? Talk about it with a particle physicist. Intrigued by circadian rhythms and sleep patterns? Discuss it with a neuroscientist! Wondering about generating energy through fusion, engineering viruses to heal spinal cord injuries, or how to get students interested in engineering? Start Talking Science is an amazing opportunity to have these one-on-one conversations: the possibilities are endless!

Start Talking Science (STS) is a free public event where STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) researchers present nontechnical posters to the community. They aim to increase the public awareness of—and interest in—cutting-edge, local research in order to make STEM more accessible. They hope to foster insightful conversations and connections while strengthening the communication skills of researchers.
