About

How ethical are synthetic biology and cloning? How can AI be used to address healthcare disparities? What unintended consequences could it have? Why are scientists releasing billions of mosquitoes to the wild?

You can expect some of what will be discussed to look like those questions -- none are limited to biology and I will be receptive to topics you guys can offer! Please participate in this informal series, ready to learn, for fun!!

My hope with this series is that you not only improve your scientific literacy but also your communication and critical thinking skills, which will be applicable in any field you choose to pursue, science or not. Towards the end of the series, we will provide dedicated learners with an exciting FUN project that you WON’T want to miss!

General Structure of Meetings (may vary):
1) Concise overview, key aspects, relevance and current implications of topic
2) Random breakout rooms; each group will explore a specific aspect of the topic in more detail
3) Reconvene: Each group (representative or shared) will share their key insights (this will be important for the guided discussion)
4) Guided discussion with prepared critical questions based on everyone's input; there will also be follow-up questions
5) Your final thoughts/reflections; summarization of main insights, questions, and conclusions
6) Topics you want to see in the future: put them in the chat!
7) Post-meeting discussion forum with a burning question in the SHW group chat related to the topic (short ~1-2 sentence response)

Expectations and Prerequisites: Just come ready to actively learn and contribute from and to the discussion. Whether you have all the science experience in the world or just beginning to see what science offers, everyone is welcome to engage and have fun in our informal series; all you need to bring to meetings is your enthusiasm for science!

✋ ATTENDANCE POLICY

Attendance is optional, but highly recommended to join whenever possible. However, if there aren't enough spaces and your absences are too consistent, you will be withdrawn from the series.

Again, the purpose of this series is to explore the many dimensions that science offers and it may reveal an interest that you had that you never knew you did.

We will be doing a VERY exciting project at the end, and your attendance will be important... Stay tuned!!

About the Tutor

I'm a high school student from New York looking forward to helping others and learning new things. I love learning more about the world around me by the second; as an aspiring anesthesiologist, the fields of maths and sciences around us appeal to me most due to their applicability in the real world, allowing us to progress all around. You can often catch me playing chess (1000 ELO at the moment), watching YouTube (subscriptions include but are not limited to: Dhar Mann, MrBeast, Khan Academy, GMHikaru, The Organic Chemistry Tutor, and many more), and having fun with my family!
