Wonderfest Science Envoys are early-career researchers with special communication skills and aspirations. Following short talks on provocative modern science topics, these two Science Envoys will answer questions with insight and enthusiasm:
- UC Berkeley astronomer Fatima Abdurrahman debunks sci-fi movie tropes and explains exactly what a black hole is, why they're so hard to find, and how we can circumvent that difficulty to find them.
- Stanford neuroscientist Tyler Bonnen explores how an experience becomes a memory. He'll provide a sketch of information processing in the brain — from perceptual encoding to conscious recollection.
This event is FREE. Still, what value does this knowledge have FOR YOU? Please contribute to Wonderfest accordingly, and help to promote the scientific outlook broadly — as through this outstanding Science Envoy Program — via the "Tickets" box, below.
