Jeff Shaver , PhD.

Science Education, Research & Outreach Specialist, Exo Labs
Seattle, WA

Ignite curiosity! That is the goal of what we do at Exo Labs. Therefore, it is the goal of my talk to ignite curiosity around the use of new technology for engaging students and the general public in science research, providing new ways to conduct research, and bringing back the love of science that you often see with a group of energetic elementary-aged kids. During my talk I will show you how our Focus Microscope Camera works to connect microscopes to Apple mobile devices, and also tell the story of how I evolved from a PhD student, to a high school teacher, to an entrepreneur.
