Sweet Scientists to speak at WN@tL on April 8

Maya Warren and Amy DeJong, food science graduate students and winners of The Amazing Race, will be speaking at Wednesday Night at the Lab this week. Warren and DeJong (who were dubbed the “Sweet Scientists” during the race), will give attendees a taste of their research in ice cream and in candy. They’ll also describe how their experiences on The Amazing Race are inspiring their work to change how people view scientists and to inspire girls to consider careers in science.

Their talk will take place at 7:00 p.m. on April 8 in room 1111 of the Biotechnology Center (425 Henry Mall).
