Smiti Shah was one of thirty students internationally that were invited to take part in a truly memorable day.  The students first met at The Club Quarters on Wall Street for breakfast and had the opportunity to listen to the President of the New York Academy of Sciences and founder of the Junior Academy, an online course part of a STEM program run by the Global STEM Alliance in which Smiti is currently enrolled.  Students then traveled to the YouTube Space in Chelsea Market to have lunch and speak to other students in the Junior Academy. The students then had the opportunity to take part in a Q&A session with Bill and Melinda Gates, moderated by John Green. Afterwards, there was a reception in which the students got to meet and have conversations with the aforementioned personalities!  The archived Q&A can be HERE. We are extremely proud of Smiti and glad that she got to participate in this event!
