Wonderfest: Ask a Science Envoy x 4

Wonderfest Science Envoys are early-career researchers with special communication skills and aspirations. Following short talks on provocative modern science topics, these four Envoys will answer your questions with insight and enthusiasm:

  • UC Berkeley's Carina Cheng on "Observing the Night Sky" - What kinds of astronomical objects and phenomena can you observe in the night sky, and why is stargazing good for the soul?
  • UC Berkeley's Mariel Goddu on "Where Do New Ideas Come From?" - Are the precursors to deviance, innovation, and productive rule-breaking evident in children's cognitive flexibility?
  • Stanford's Ryan York on "Evolution Is All Around You" - How does the modern evidence of evolution in action have implications for how we think about evolution and nature itself?
  • Stanford's Tyler McFadden on "Plantations, Pinochet, and a Paradigm Shift" - How can we navigate ecology, history, and politics to conserve biodiversity and solve Chile's largest environmental conflict?
