Overview

Scientists and science educators in the Wenatchee Valley have been gathering for the past few years for weekly seminars to catalyze the development of an engaged regional scientific community. Each series features the research of local scientists and invited guest speakers.

This year’s events are held at the Washington State University Tree Fruit Research and Extension Center in Wenatchee, and are open to the public. Join us for this great opportunity to learn about the incredible research in our own backyard. Prior registration is not required to attend these events.

This project is supported by a grant from Our Valley Our Future. Other supporters include: NCESD, Apple STEM Network, Washington State University, The Bridge, Wenatchee Valley College, and USDA.

The seminar presentations are intended for a ‘science-based’ audience, including researchers, postdoctoral scientists, teachers, graduate students, undergraduate scientists, and science enthusiasts.

K-12 educators are also encouraged to attend the seminar series to learn about local career connections and research efforts that they can bring back to their students. Clock hours are available through the North Central Educational Service District for attending the series.
