Ever wonder how your IPad moves information from app to app? Did you know bananas had DNA? If you participate in Can You Imagine? not only will you extract banana DNA but you’ll experiment with food design and taste testing. You’ll also get to design a game show buzzer and then wire it to work to buzz your answers in for a prize. Ever wondered what it actually took to truly clean up an oil spill? You’ll find out by scrubbing a mock seacoast yourself. In addition, you’ll get the chance to meet STEM professionals who love their jobs and can help you explore the difference in your future that a technological career can make.
