Young Scientist Roundtables

A monthly program designed for students to learn about exciting ideas and developments in many scientific fields.

The Young Scientist Roundtable program is a joint effort with our neighboring districts. It is a monthly program, designed for students in kindergarten through 12th grade and their parents to learn about exciting ideas and developments presented by professors and prominent experts in many scientific fields. It is hosted by the Wayzata Public Schools.

Throughout the school year several scientists come to Wayzata Central Middle School in the evening at 7:00pm to share their area of expertise, and to interact with the students during their presentation. This is generally followed by a "Teen Roundtable" where students can participate in an in-depth discussion and question/answer session with the speaker. The Young Scientist Roundtable is an excellent program, free to our students, and followed by many on a regular basis.

Check back often to see who is presenting in the weeks ahead. As soon as we receive the schedule from Wayzata, we will post it on this page. The first session is typically the first week of October. Sessions are typically on Mondays or Tuesdays.
