Students and scientists work alongside one another to create conversations about science and help scientists to develop language and communication skills to speak to the next generation. These volunteers will help organize opportunities to have scientists connect with other students in the community and expose them to the sciences, and it also increases scientist’s exposure to a younger audience.
