HOW TO GET THERE?
Guest speaker Kerry Betz, a graduate student at Stanford University, explains how catalytic reactions work in chemistry, and what it could mean for the future of research. She'll also be performing a cool hands-on lab activity using exciting reactions, so make sure to be there!
"Hi! My name is Vedant Sathye and I'm currently a junior at Monta Vista High School. I'm a student passionate about STEM and brightening my horizons when it comes to learning about science. My hobbies include competitive swimming, volunteering, teaching children how to swim, and spending time with friends and family. As a co-founder of the Open Source Teen Science cafe, I want to bring the engaging and interesting parts of STEM to the Bay Area by providing a social interactive environment for teens to learn.
About the TeaM
Hi guys! My name is Satvik Narasimhan and I'm a sophomore at Saratoga High school. Science and technology is empowering the world in ways that is positively transformative. I have always been interested in science, exploring the fascinating world of scientific research since starting high school. We live and breathe science in our Silicon Valley communities and sometimes don’t even realize how science touches our daily lives. Co-founding the "Open Source” Teen Science Cafe, my goal is to enable myself and my peers to meet and greet various scientists and innovators and explore science in an interactive environment where “Science is fun” and accessible to all. My other interests include playing basketball, debate, and learning about World affairs.
Hello everyone! My name is Manav Shah and I am currently a junior at Monta Vista High School in Cupertino. STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, & Math) and scientific research have become a huge part of my life since joining high school. I enjoy participating in science competitions including Synopsys and Google, teaching STEM classes in my local community, and conducting research with professors over summer. My other hobbies/interests include playing soccer, volunteering, reading, and spending time with my friends. One of my biggest beliefs is that the key to scientific innovation and advancement is being able to apply scientific principles, which stems from creativity and inspiration. In founding a Teen Science Cafe in the Bay Area, I hope that scientific experts and speakers will inspire teens to continue to innovate and help them find an interesting career choice. This relaxing, social environment will be perfect for teens to explore the STEM community!
