Seven Minutes of Science is a fast-paced event in which Northwestern University graduate students will present an overview of their scientific research in seven-minutes. The students are all participants in Ready Set Go, a science communication program at the University in which they learn presentation skills for addressing non-scientific audiences and the general public. You will get a taste of some of the fascinating research going on at Northwestern in a way that is accessible to individuals from any field. (And you’ll be really impressed with the work these students are doing!)
Talks will cover topics from the following fields:
- Biomedical Engineering
- Chemical & Biological Engineering
- Communication Sciences & Disorders
