Calling all MIT graduate students and postdocs! Share your story during the Cambridge Science Festival
What was high school science class like for you? Was it anything like what you do today? Whether your pre-college science studies rocked your world or sent you screaming, we want to hear about them. We're looking for 10-minute talks that take us back to your most memorable moments from high school science class and explain what those experiences (good, bad, or ugly) had to do with what you study today. Tell us what your high school did right, what they did wrong, and why the world would be a better place if you were in charge. Stories can be humorous, inspiring, or just plain cringe-worthy. We'll provide the bartender and the audience; you provide the flashbacks.
What we're looking for:
How to participate:
Submit an email with subject line "HS Science" to firstname.lastname@example.org that includes your name, year/degree aspiration, course/major, phone #, and a brief note introducing yourself -- the way you might want to introduce yourself to your audience. Include a 1-2-minute audio or video clip (.mov preferred, or a link to YouTube, Vimeo, Dropbox, etc.) that tells us the title of your talk and gives us a taste of it and a sense of you as a speaker. If you can’t do an audio/video clip, let us know several dates/times when you’re available to do a 1-minute presentation.
Intended audience is adults (including your peers). There will be a cash bar.
You may bring up to 5 images to show on slides. Slides may not contain text, charts, graphs, or equations.
Do you have an MIT experience that trumps all others? Is it inspiring, grounding, or possibly even mortifying? Share your stories at the MIT Museum with classmates, prospective students, alumni, and members of the public. Whether you love MIT or HTFP (or maybe a little bit of both) we want to hear what keeps you coming back for more drinks at the firehose!
Note: This program has been postponed indefinitely. If you are interested in participating in this program in the future, email us at email@example.com.
