The League of Extraordinary Scientists and Engineers: More Science in Your Fiction

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Writers, directors, sci-fi fans and kids: Get ready to ask your questions about the real science in your fiction! Jeane Wong (founder and educator, LXS) is obsessed with science and has a solid origin with superheroes and teaching young minds about discovering those same powers in the real world-from tiny insects to deep ocean creatures to robots, rockets, and beyond! Hear from Jeane along with her LXS panelists Dr. Tom Darlington (chief scientist, NanoComposix), Ben Frable (marine biologist, Scripps Institution of Oceanography), Dr. Sunny Fugate (technical director for cyber warfare, Naval Information Warfare Center), Dr. Nicholas Galitzki (edge of the universe explorer/cosmologist, Simons Observatory), Joe Hanson (science writer/host, It's Ok to Be Smart, from PBS), Molly Matty, Ph.D. (Dr. DNA, Salk Institute for Biological Studies), Jasmine L. Sadler (rocket scientist and CEO, The STEAM Collaborative), and Angela Zoumplis (extremophile explorer, Scripps Institute of Oceanography). They will discuss how comics and science fiction push scientists and engineers to rocket past what we know is possible at any given moment and into an otherwise unimaginable future!
