Faculty Science on Tap Application
"Science on Tap!" aims to connect scientists with the Ithaca community to discuss relevant research in an accessible way. This series is unique in that it offers an authentic seminar setting with scientists from diverse fields, backgrounds and nationalities that community members can identify with, in order to develop a sense of belonging and value within science. It also provides scientists a rare platform to participate in public engagement to present the most exciting aspects of their research to the general public.

This opportunity is open to Cornell University and Ithaca College faculty in physical, natural and social sciences. For a glimpse at past talk topics see our "Science on Tap!" webpage:

While open to everyone, folks from underrepresented or historically underrepresented groups are especially encouraged to apply!

Science on Tap aims to make science more accessible to everyone and provide representation for those from underrepresented/historically marginalized groups by bringing in a diverse set of speakers or highlighting work from individuals that identify with such groups. Is there anything else you would like to share with us related to this goal that makes you a good candidate for the program?
