Invite a scientist to your classroom

The Nebraska Science Festival recruited dynamic and dedicated STEM experts to share their excitement about science with students in middle school classes. These talented experts are selected to mirror the diversity of our state and are available to visit Nebraska schools through the Festival’s Invite-a-Scientist program. The goal of each visit is to inspire your students to consider science as a career and to understand how science impacts our lives.

Interested in applying? Classes are paired with scientists based on order of application as well as geographic distribution and availability.
