‘Science & Us’ Makeathon at MIT, Aug. 17

Science & Us will host its third Makeathon — at MIT on August 17, 9AM-5PM — for middle- and high-school students from any school. Students will create their own STEM communications projects to explain a STEM topic of their choosing in an exciting and understandable way. A team of expert mentors will help students write articles, create animations, and make podcasts. And there will be free food and swag. Sign up here. These events are hosted by Boston-area high-school students who are fascinated not only by STEM but also by communicating well with the general public.
