  • Big Ideas - Meeting Grand Challenges

    Thursday, November 16, 2017
    Join us for a very different Conversations! Three teams of scientists from the Danforth Plant Science Center will present new ideas that address big challenges in agriculture and the environment. The teams, composed of some of the best and brightest young scientists at the Danforth Center, will engage in a friendly competition to communicate their big ideas in creative, inspiring ways. A panel of interactive judges will participate by selecting a top team, which will receive a grant to pursue their idea at the Center.
