This Year's Keynote Session!
Who wants to be a wild, wondrous, wiggly worm?
Think worms are boring and gross? Well think again! This year’s Keynote session is all about the unbelievably complex and fascinating worm. The session is presented by Georgia Tech professor, Cecil J. "Pete" Silas Chair of Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering, and MES parent; Dr. Hang Lu! Come learn just how “wormderful” these invertebrates are and how useful they are to our world. The Keynote session is open to all in the MES community (no need to register for this) and happens Tuesday, March 1st 5:30 - 6:00pm here.
