The Meet the Scientist events give children and families opportunities to explore the work of professional scientists and engineers from Lehigh University, Cedar Crest College, and additional colleges. Events include engaging hands-on activities related to the work being done every day. The program’s objective is to make young people more aware of accessible and lucrative career opportunities in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) industries.
The Da Vinci Science Center developed its Meet the Scientist events through its participation in the national Portal to the Public partnership created by the Pacific Science Center in Seattle, Washington. The Portal to the Public program helps science centers train STEM professionals in engaging and enriching ways to share their knowledge with children and informal public audiences. Its essence is helping accomplished scientists share their knowledge, their work, and their passions to the general public in a approachable manner.
