Science Forum 2020: Sports Concussions

Concussions affect athletes of all ages and occur in a wide range of sports from soccer and football to bicycling and basketball. With the popularity of sports at an all-time high, recent scientific research has focused on identifying concussions, creating return-to-play protocols, and inventing hi-tech equipment to prevent brain injuries.

In this presentation, moderator Steve Kraske will lead a discussion and audience Q&A session with a panel of experts on a variety of concussion-related topics. This is a must-attend event for parents, young athletes, coaches, trainers, and school administrators.

How Do I Become an Engineer?

Designed for high school students, this event will include a one-hour panel discussion and Q&A at the Linda Hall Library with young engineers. Following the panel discussion, students and guests will tour the UMKC School of Computing and Engineering to learn about academic programs and see engineering demonstrations.

Presented by the Linda Hall Library and the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Computing and Engineering.
