featuring City of STEM and Biocom Institute
Join our guest host Ben Dickow (Executive Director of the Columbia Memorial Space Center and City of STEM Festival director) in conversation with Karmin Noar (Executive Director of Biocom Institute) and Rohit Shukla (Founder and CEO of Larta Institute) as they discuss how the Greater LA Region has contributed to the empowerment of STEM education, what diversity means to them, and how we can raise the next generation of STEM leaders as part of the legacy of Los Angeles.
City of STEM officially kicks off with a virtual event streaming LIVE on Youtube on Saturday, October 10. Dozens of STEM partners across Southern California – from science rock bands, museums, universities to special guest engineers – have come together to produce over 18 hours of streaming content across multiple channels from 10am – 5pm. This includes exciting live and recorded demonstrations, compelling updates from real scientists and engineers, along with special guests including Jason Latimer, the talent behind the recently released YouTube series “Impossible Science. “
City of STEM, LA’s largest science program, usually runs the entire month of April with over 150 events occurring across Greater LA. Due to the pandemic, the live events, which usually see tens of thousands of attendees, had to be postponed. Now, we are going online! If you’re a fan of STEM, this is the ultimate event for you.
