You’re invited to join dozens of Scripps Research institute scientists on Saturday, March 5, 2016 in The Gardens Mall for the seventh annual CELLebrate Scripps Florida Science Day. Featuring intriguing science demonstrations and fun, interactive exhibits, “CELLebrate” Science with Scripps Florida is our annual community science festival designed to spark curiosity and a sense of wonder in visitors of all ages. CELLebrate Science will run from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and admission is free.
Since its launch in 2010, CELLebrate Science has sought to make science relatable, relevant and fun for more than 10,000 visitors, offering a variety of activity booths, special presentations and displays that highlight the impact of biomedical research in our daily lives. Visitors to CELLebrate Science will meet world-class scientists who work every day to understand the basic biology of diseases like cancer, diabetes, autism, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s, while using the power of chemistry to develop new treatments.
Located throughout the Mall’s lower level, the CELLebrate2016 event will highlight the exciting biomedical research of Scripps Florida scientists with displays that feature work in departments including Cancer Biology, Metabolism and Aging, Neuroscience, Immunology and Microbial Science, Chemistry, and Molecular Therapeutics. In addition, the robotic technology group will have its own booth.
The chemistry exhibit, always a favorite, will explore topics from exploding hydrogen bubbles to the extreme cold effects of liquid nitrogen. Robotics will feature Scripps Florida’s drug screening capabilities—how specialized robots help scientists search for new medicines—and miniature plastic robots “printed” in 3D.
We look forward to seeing you on Saturday, March 5 for CELLebrate2016 with Scripps Florida!
