Saturday STEM Seminar: From Star-gazing Child to Astrophysicist

October 22 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am


During Science City’s Saturday STEM Seminars, local STEM professionals present hot topics in science, technology, engineering and math as well as highlights of their education and career paths. A Q&A session follows. The seminars, geared toward students in grades 7-12, are open to the public. Registration is required, but walk-ups are welcome!

Note to teachers: Give your students extra credit for attending and YOU can WIN for sending the most students (one contest per semester)! Students will take notes during the seminar, and these will be stamped on their way out for proof of attendance!

In this session, Madison Philipp takes you on her journey from star-gazing child to astrophysicist.

From looking into a rural Midwestern night sky as a child to watching rocket launches from the beach between lectures, space has always been a huge fascination for this astrophysicist. Join a Science City educator on her journey from looking for constellations to researching massive binary star systems. She’ll show you that the career path of space sciences (and the opportunities it has) is truly out of this world!
