Building Better Batteries

Speaker: Ying Shirley Meng, Ph.D., Associate Professor Department of Nano Engineering University of California, San Diego.

High energy, long life, rechargeable batteries are considered an important technological opportunity to reduce production of greenhouse gasses. What standards should be set for safety of new energy storage technologies? And, who should enforce those standards? Join us for this program to learn about these exciting developments as well as discussing how best to meet potential social and ethical challenges.

Women in STEM

Two Scientists Walk Into a Bar: Women to the Rescue

What sounds like the beginning of a rather bad joke is actually a fun community program by the Fleet Science Center. During Two Scientists Walk Into a Bar™, local scientists will enjoy something we all do: a good conversation in a local bar. Join them, and ask them anything you want! They'll be easy to spot. Just look for the sign that reads: "We are scientists. Ask us anything!"

We love hearing the questions being asked and seeing pictures of all the fun, so if you participate, be sure to post on social media, and tag the Fleet and use the hashtag #2scientists.
