Please join us in celebrating 40 years of career exploration.
AAAS Headquarters June 2nd 5:30 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.
Steve Mirsky has been an editor and columnist for Scientific American since 1995. He received a Master's Degree in chemistry from Cornell University in 1985, after which, he was awarded a Mass Media Fellowship by the American Association for the Advancement of Science to work that summer as a science journalist at WSVN-TV in Miami. This critical event removed him from the lab, to the relief of the Ithaca Fire Department. He freelanced for numerous magazines before joining the staff of Scientific American. In 2004-5, he was a Knight Science Journalism Fellow at MIT. He started the Scientific American podcasts in 2005, which is why it's okay that to this day he spends most of his working hours in front of a microphone in his basement. In 2009, he received an honorary doctor of science degree from his alma mater, Herbert. H. Lehan College of the City University of New York. He only uses the title when someone on an airplane or in restaurants asks, "Is anyone here a doctor?" to which he replies, "Technically."
Anyone interested in attending this event is welcome. Please RSVP.
