Sacramento Science Discovery Weekends

Dinner With A Scientist



"Dinner with a Scientist" represents Sacramento's participation in a nationwide effort to inform and encourage junior high and high school students interested to pursuing careers in STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics). It is a collaboration between the UC Davis Department of Education, Powerhouse Science Center, the Sacramento Area Science Project, and school districts within Sacramento County. 

"Dinner with a Scientist" offers students an opportunity to meet active science professionals, and through casual conversation, gain a better understanding of the pathways to a science career, different job opportunities, and various professional options, as well as the day-to-day realities of working in STEM positions. 

We are grateful to our sponsors who make these evenings possible and the scientists who were are generous with their time.


And to all our student attendees: Best wishes for your future education and career choices! Maybe one day YOU will be a scientist participating in "Dinner with a Scientist"! 
Student attendees are selected and registered by their science teachers.
