Dinner with a Scientist

Dinner with a Scientist gives 4th-12th grade students from Calaveras and Amador County schools a unique opportunity to enjoy dinner and an evening with local scientists in a professional environment. Scientists ranging from geologists to veterinarians, biologists, educators, engineers, and more, volunteer to spend an evening discussing their field of expertise. Teachers attend the event with a team of 2 to 4 students and enjoy a three-course meal where students ask questions and scientists share their enthusiasm and advice about careers in technology, engineering, math, and science. 

2021 Dinner With a Scientist will be held outside in a covered barn at the Calaveras County Fair Grounds.
The event is on Nov. 18th from 4:00 pm-7:30 pm.

*Current COVID-19 guidelines will be followed.* Individuals attending the event will be required to wear masks unless they are eating or drinking. The safety of all attendees is our utmost priority.
