Jeane Wong (founder and educator, LXS) is obsessed with science and has a solid origin with superheroes and teaching young minds about discovering those same powers in the real world – from tiny insects to deep ocean creatures to robots, rockets, and beyond! Join Jeane, along with her LXS panel guests Dr. Tom Darlington (chief scientist, NanoComposix), Ben Frable (marine biologist, Scripps Institution of Oceanography), Dr. Sunny Fugate (technical director for cyber warfare, Naval Information Warfare Center), Dr. Nicholas Galitzki (edge of the universe explorer/cosmologist, Simons Observatory), Lisa Zeigler Allen, Ph.D. (J. Craig Venter Institute Microbial & Environmental Genomics), Molly Matty, Ph.D. (Dr. DNA, Salk Institute for Biological Studies), Jasmine L. Sadler (rocket scientist and CEO, The STEAM Collaborative), and Angela Zoumplis (extremophile explorer, Scripps Institute of Oceanography). They will discuss how comics and science fiction push scientists and engineers to rocket past what we know is possible at any given moment and into an otherwise unimaginable future! Come curious and leave inspired!
