Oakland Students Have ‘Dinner with a Scientist’ Tonight

From the department of good news in public education: Tonight, the Oakland Unified School District will be hosting its third annual “Dinner with a Scientist,” a huge semi-formal gala that brings together teachers, students, and working scientists from the local community.

Caleb Cheung, the district’s Science Manager, calls the event a kind of cross between “prom, Career Day, and speed dating.” He came up with the idea for the dinner after hearing about a smaller-scale version that was put together by the Office of Education in San Joaquin County.
