Bringing family into the science

Quote

A couple thoughts:

Maybe award a fellowship to some students who prepare a science demo for kids.

Some conference-advertised family activities: collecting specimens on a hike and looking at them with a Foldscope or microscope at home, meet for a snorkel trip... things that help us all to connect on a personal level, and in the context of science.

For some PIs (Radhika, Manu this year), it's clear that they would appeal to a family audience - maybe we put them together, tell them in advance that family will be invited, and call this the "family session".

Maybe even a family poster session?

Thanks!
