“THE SCIENCE OF BUBBLES” KEYNOTE ADDRESS SET FOR ANNUAL CONGRESSIONAL LUNCHEON ON APRIL 18th HOSTED BY CENTER FOR EXCELLENCE IN EDUCATION
 

McLean, VA (April 3, 2018) — The Center for Excellence in Education (CEE), a nonprofit dedicated to improving STEM education through national and international programs for students and teachers, will host its Annual Congressional Luncheon at 11:30 a.m. on Wednesday, April 18th, at the Russell Senate Office Building, Room SR-325, in Washington, D.C. 

Dr. James Bird, Professor at Boston University’s College of Engineering, will deliver the keynote address. His address discusses many of the applications of drops and bubbles. Dr. Bird’s research is motivated by problems in a variety of fields, including healthcare (e.g. virus transfer via droplets), energy (e.g. boiling and condensation), and materials (e.g. foams). He will speak on the “Science of Bubbles.”

CEE’s Annual Congressional Luncheon celebrates 35 years of success through its impactful STEM education programs: the Research Science Institute (RSI) at MIT, the USA Biology Olympiad (USABO), the Department of Defense Internships, and the Teacher Enrichment Program (TEP). 

“To keep and grow U.S. leadership in science and mathematics, leaders in science, business, and technology must advance programs that both identify and nurture top achieving STEM students while simultaneously helping all students to maximize their potential to contribute to this country’s technological and scientific future,” said CEE President Joann DiGennaro.

“CEE has nearly 3,000 Research Science Institute alumni; engaged more than 150,000 USA Biology Olympiad high school students; and reached almost half a million underserved students through our Teacher Enrichment Program,” added DiGennaro.
