Wellesley Science & Technology Expo: Workshops filling up fast

The Wellesley Science & Technology Expo scheduled for Saturday, April 5 at Wellesley High School  is starting to see many of its workshops fill up (including the planetarium), so would-be attendees should register for passes soon to ensure you get to check out some of the things you might be interested in.

There will be plenty to do and see beyond the workshops, however, including exhibits (robotics, DNA extraction, plants and more) and a showcase of student work from 10am-2pm. Among the highlights: Bring a few tablespoons of soil from your yard to find out what’s in it courtesy of Wellesley College geochemist Dan Brabander, whose research has found high lead levels in local garden soil.

Speakers are slated to speak on the hour, concluding with a talk by former NASA astronaut Jeff Hoffman at 2pm. Other talks will focus on climate change, inventing medical devices and inspiring women in STEM.  High school students will have a chance to hobnob with STEM pros at 3pm.
