Science Salon is a forum for professional scientists in Minnesota to stay current on groundbreaking research and emerging technologies, engage in cross-disciplinary social interactions and networking, and participate in philanthropic activities. The meeting format will vary and include: speakers, networking, science cafe, science quiz bowl and other activities. We recently hosted a tour of the World of 3M Innovation at the 3M Innovation Center on May 15. This exceptional opportunity was normally open only to 3M customers and employees. 3M graciously sponsored this event and extended the invitation to Science Salon attendees. It was a fun night of networking. Watch our website for information on our next Science Salon event!
Annual Meeting & Winchell Undergraduate Research Symposium
The Annual Meeting & Winchell Undergraduate Research Symposium provides the opportunity for individuals involved in science to meet their colleagues in colleges, industry, and government and to hear or present the results of research with a regional emphasis. The event also allows a forum for undergraduate students to present their research to a broad audience. The meeting location is rotated throughout the state of Minnesota. The 2015 Annual Meeting & Winchell Undergraduate Research Symposium will be held at the University of Minnesota - Twin Cities.
State Science & Engineering Fair
The State Science & Engineering Fair is an annual event that showcases Minnesota's best and brightest students in the fields of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). It is the culmination of Regional Science Fairs occurring throughout the state. Middle school students may participate with a project, a research paper or both; high school students may participate with a project. High school students wishing to present a research paper compete in the Junior Science & Humanities Symposium (JSHS). Dates for the 2015 Minnesota State Science & Engineering Fair and JSHS will be posted soon.
