Volleyball, Webcomics, and Thriving As a Science Student

Volleyball. Speakers who’ve shared at Urbana 15 and Veritas Forum, or served as Senior Project Scientist for the Hubble Space Telescope. A webcomics and science chat. Hikes in beautiful California scenery. Hearing how science can deepen your Christian faith. What brings all these things together?

The InterVarsity Emerging Scholars Network student/early career track at the American Scientific Affiliation (ASA) 2016 conference! It’s not too late to join 40 other students/early career scientists at beautiful Azusa Pacific University near LA on July 22-25, 2016. Cosponsored by InterVarsity’s Emerging Scholars Network (ESN) and ASA, a professional association for Christians in science, this pilot student track will include panels on:

  • Growing Spiritually Through Your Work in Science
  • Finding Christian Mentors/Community in Science
  • Thriving As a Science Student (Graduate or Undergraduate)
  • Talking to Secular Colleagues About Faith  

Confirmed speakers include Josh Swamidass (Urbana 15 talk); Dave Vosburg (Urbana 15 Talk); and Jennifer Wiseman, Senior Project Scientist for the Hubble Space Telescope (ESN Interview).

Tom's hoping to see you on the court this summer or next. He was only warming up in 2015 ;)
