Ask a Scientist Opportunity: A few slots are still open!

The Brighton Farmers Market has offered to provide a table during the summer market, which we are calling “Ask a Scientist.” The goal is to capitalize on the energy from local teach-ins and the March for Science to provide educational outreach on an ongoing basis. The market takes place on Sundays from 9 AM–1 PMMay 14–November 19. The Google Doc below includes a sign-up for two-hour time slots throughout the summer and fall. Slots for the fall are still open. If you are interested, please sign yourself up, or pass the link to others who may be interested. Scientists from all backgrounds and levels are welcome and encouraged to participate:
