SMASH Needs Math & Science Speakers!

Summer Math and Science Honors Academy (SMASH) presented by Level Playing Field Institute (LPFI) is hosting a Speaker Series. In brief, the intent of the Speaker Series is:

• An opportunity to expose our SMASH scholars to ideas and career fields which they may not have previously considered within Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). 
• Present speakers with similar backgrounds as our SMASH Scholars (low income, minority and first generation college graduates)to share their stories and their paths to their current careers.
