On January 23, CEA-Grenoble will hold the third annual “You Too Can Be a Scientist!” day to introduce high school juniors and seniors to careers in science. The event, part of a nationwide program, will include three-minute one-on-one elevator pitches by fifteen research professionals (engineers, scientists, technicians, and Ph.D. students). During these pitches—which were highly popular in 2013—each professional describes his or her line of work with the help of an object, like an ultra-thin wire for a biologist working on nanotubes or a model of an atom for a chemistry technician.
The event will also include lab tours and opportunities for the students to meet with the presenters.
