Scientist Sundays
During the first Sunday of every month, join the Patricia and Phillip Frost Museum of Science for a special experience. 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 to help visitors discover what they do and why it is so important.

This Sunday's participating fellows include:
Richard Zuech, FAU Graduate Student – Rich’s research focuses on cyber security. Find out how computer scientists and software engineers uncover computer bugs and viruses and work to stop them before they ever reach your computer.

Kimberly Chamales, RSMAS Graduate Student – Kim’s research focuses on paleoclimatology. Find out how the climate changes on really long time scales (20,000+ years) and what changes in the Earth’s orbit mean from temperature and rain patterns.

Katinka’s research focuses on the role of clouds on Earth's climate. Learn more and experiment to create a cloud in a bottle.

Kimberly Chamales - University of Miami, RSMAS
Kim studies how rainfall on the Earth has changed over the past 100,000 years from changes in the Earth's orbit around the Sun. Explore how temperature and rainfall patterns change with a fun mini Earth and some surprises.

Meredith Jennings - University of Miami, RSMAS
Meredith’s research focuses on better understanding the carbon cycle in the ocean. Create your own carbon particle and test your skill at sinking to the bottom of the ocean.

Theresa Strazisar - FAU
Theresa is studying a species of seagrass called wigeongrass in the southern Everglades, where she goes out into the field to take measurements of this important ecological feature. Become the scientist and make predictions on how much wigeongrass will grow at multiple sites, then see if you got it right with real measurements.

Richard Zuech - FAU
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).
