▶︎ Please join our email list to receive our monthly newsletter, in which we will announce upcoming Science Journeys.
Questions about Science Journeys or Caltech outreach to youth?
Are you a Caltech postdoc or graduate student interested in sharing your journey with young people?
Please email Mary Herrera.
Everyone’s journey to becoming a scientist is unique. Don't miss this chance to interact with the Caltech scientific stars of tomorrow as they share their research, what inspires them, and their story so far.
In Science Journeys, graduate students and postdoctoral scholars explore a range of scientific topics that will spark students' curiosity and provide educators with supplemental resources to continue that exploration in the classroom.
Programs are designed especially for middle and high school students, but everyone is welcome to attend. All events are free through the generosity of the Friends of Beckman Auditorium, but registration is required.

Coming Up: Chaos, Turbulence, and the Beauty of Uncertainty in Complex Systems
When you think of turbulence, uncomfortable airplane rides may come to mind, but it's in many more places than you think. Turbulence perplexes all kinds of scientists, but Tanner is here to explain how he studies it.
