Students from Albert Einstein Middle School attended the annual “Dinner with a Scientist” event at McClellan Air Force Base last month.

Over dinner, students Sasha Stanley, Nha Thanh and Christian Orr discussed careers with various scientists from the Sacramento region, including a genetics specialist, a molecular biologist and Sacramento State professor Ronald Coleman, a fisheries researcher.

Dinner With A Scientist is a STEM series produced by the Sacramento Area Science Project and the Powerhouse Science Center.

The evening provides an opportunity for middle and high school students learn about the day-to-day work of scientists.

The evening includes the “Science Challenge” – a lively scientific knowledge competition. After dinner the students change tables for dessert and talk with a different scientist. A science keynote speaker is also part of the evening.
