"You will do foolish things, but do them with enthusiasm."
Wow, your becoming a professional (and busy) speaker. Let me know if you're doing a UK tour at any point. I'm pretty sure you'll find many hosts (including myself).
Will do! I'd love to visit the UK!
I want to go talk about genetics at my high school. Maybe on a future DNA Day. How did you set this up? What are you going to talk about?
I just corresponded with a teacher there. I think a lot of high school teachers would love to have a guest presentation! I'm still working out the details of what I'll present. Previously, I've given lessons on Phylogenetics, but these are for general science students, so I'll probably talk about what graduate school is, and what kind of research I do, in general. Doubtful that I'll have a formal presentation.I'd love to do something for DNA Day - when is it this year?
DNA Day is usually in late April, corresponding with the anniversary of Watson and Crick paper. ASHG sponsors a high school DNA Day essay contest, so I figure that would be a good time to do some outreach :)
Great idea! Hopefully April will be a bit calmer for me also, so I might try to do something here too. :)
