Dinner with a Scientist 2018 - Scientist Registration Form


Dear Local Scientist,

Thank you for your interest in being a featured scientist at one of the 2018 OUSD Dinner with a Scientist events. Use this site to register only if you have previously participated, belong to one of our partner organizations, or have contacted Caleb Cheung in advance.

Guest scientists are the main feature of this event. By registering, you are making a firm commitment to participate.

All scientists are expected to attend the entire event from 5-8 pm. You will be sharing about your work, answering questions, and leading a short activity at your table related to your work. We are happy to help you plan the activity if you need assistance.

The information below will be used in the event program. Please make sure all information is grammatically correct as we need to enter the information for over 50 scientists into our programs.

The registration deadline is April 20. Additional information is on our website at http://science.ousd.org/dinner.htm

Thanks again for supporting our teachers and students!

Caleb Cheung
Director of Education
