Special Events for Today

Scientist Sundays
Join us for our last Scientist Sunday at the current museum! Visit the Patricia and Phillip Frost Museum of Science for a special experience with the Museum's Science Communication Fellows. Meet and greet with local scientists who are experts in a variety of fields, including marine biology, climate and weather, software engineering, the brain, primatology, the ocean, and much more. Trained through the Museum's Science Communication Fellows Program, these scientists developed exciting hands-on activities for visitors to discover what they do and why it is so important.

Sunday's participating scientists include:

Michelle Larrea, Assistant Professor at NOVA Southeastern University. Michelle's research focuses on the small proteins that make us up and what effects the way they work. Explore the world of proteins by building your own with legos.

Shannon Pruden, Assistant Professor at Florida International University. Shannon is interested in how young children learn languages and spatial skills. Join her for a series of activities that challenge your spatial reasoning and bring out your creative side by making structures out of 2D and 3D shapes.

Theresa Strazisar, Graduate Student at Florida Atlantic University. Theresa is studying a species of seagrass called widgeon grass in the southern Everglades, where she takes measurements of this important ecological feature. Become the scientist and make predictions on how much widgeon grass will grow at multiple sites.

Richard Zuech, Graduate Student at Florida Atlantic University. Rich works on finding solutions to make the Internet safer for all users by data mining through the mountains of computer data to find the weaknesses in the security. Learn how to "speak" binary and stop the "bad guys" (hackers).

Jessica Bartley, Graduate Student at Florida International University. Jessica is exploring how the brain learns physics by taking pictures of the brain while it works to solve problems. Learn about the different parts of the brain involved in problem solving with a special brain helmet that lights up as you try to solve puzzles and other activities.
