Bite of Science

Email CEE Icon

This exciting, cost free dinner event brings together 25 high school STEM teachers with leading scientists and/or engineers from industry, academia, or government. Teachers have the opportunity to learn about cutting edge research and innovation, find out how to connect the research to the high school classroom, and discover ways to inspire and guide their students toward academic opportunities and STEM careers.  Attendees ask questions, network with peers, and interface with the scientist and/or engineer during the informal dinner. Presentation material and videos, as well as supplementary resources related to Bite of Science session topics, are posted on the TEP Lab Bench following all sessions.
