Bio buzz family series:  3rd Saturdays, from 1:45 – 2:15 p.m.
Free with general admission.

Bio Buzz talks are family-friendly, 20-25 minute presentations designed to stimulate conversation and inquiry surrounding a variety of topics within the field of bioscience. For the 2010-2011 season, we are also introducing 4 special “Teacher Brown Bag Lunches”.  During these designated dates, speakers also participate in a pre-talk lunch from 12-1 p.m. where local teachers have the opportunity to meet and discuss the field of bioscience and bioscience education with the speaker. Lunch is provided for the speaker. Some previous topics: “Getting into Medical School”, “Where do New Foods Come From?”, “Dangerous Dirt: Valley Fever”, “A Day in the Life of a Scientist” and  “Human Cloning”.

Scheduled Dates: (* designates a Teacher Brown Bag Lunch)

Bioscience Researchers, Scientists, Educators, etc. interested in participating in either program are encouraged to contact Carole Flores, Pathways Project manager at floresc@azscience.org including information about available dates and potential topics.

The Bio Buzz series was made possible through a five-year Science Education Partnership Award (SEPA) from the National Center for Research Resources at the National Institutes of Health. This program will give students and the general public a glimpse into the human body, its parts and processes, and new advances in biomedical research and technology.

Learn
about exciting new inventions that ASU researchers are creating to diagnose
diseases, particularly Valley Fever. What is Valley Fever and how can we
diagnose it and other diseases earlier and more accurately?  How can we
condense many tests into one tiny lab-on-a-chip with less pain, time and cost
to patients?  Learn more about this in a short lecture that includes a fun
demonstration.
