TACNY Junior Café Scientifique: Eye Surgery @ Museum of Science & Technology

May 20 @ 9:30 am – 11:00 am

Dr. Robert W Weisenthal, a clinical professor in the Department of Ophthalmology at Upstate Medical University, will lead a discussion aimed at middle school students about the evolution of eye surgery from 9:30 to 11 a.m. Saturday, May 20, at the MOST, 500 S. Franklin St., Syracuse.

“Learn how the evolution of modern technology has profoundly changed our ability to help those who cannot see,” Weisenthal said. “Find out what this small but incredible part of our body does on a daily basis to allow us to run and play, read and watch.”

Junior Café Scientifique is sponsored by the Technology Alliance of Central New York (TACNY), and usually held on the third Saturday of the month during the school year at the MOST. A light breakfast is provided. Participants must be accompanied by an adult. The event is free, but TACNY asks that you RSVP to jrcafe@tacny.org. After the event, participants are welcome to explore the museum at half-price: $6 for adults and $5 for children 2-11.
