ScienceMakers: Atlanta: Connections in Science

Atlanta: Connections in Science was held at the Fernbank Science Center in Atlanta, Georgia. The scientists discussed their own connections to Atlanta through their work and life. Each presented a slideshow about how they decided to pursue their profession before discussing as a panel their dreams as children, the future of NASA, and what's next for their career. The scientists encouraged students to do what they love and that science careers can lead to many different options - not just those in science. The program was moderated by Jocelyn Dorsey, host of WSB-TV's "People to People." The Fernbank Science Center was one of ScienceMakers' science centers partners in 2012. The participating scientists included: Ralph Etienne-Cummings, roboticist, Johns Hopkins University, John Hall, chemist, Morehouse College Joycelyn Harrison, Program Officer, Airforce Office of Scientific Research, Ayanna Howard, roboticist, Georgia Tech, and Woodrow Whitlow, Jr., Associate Administrator, NASA
