    <span style="color: #006644;"><strong>CWEL SCHOLARS JUNIOR CLASS PRESENTS: SCIENCE WITH SOPHIE</strong></span><br /> <br /> The Junior CWEL Scholars at the Center for Entrepreneurial Leadership at Babson College invites the entire Babson and surrounding community, to join us in in welcoming Sophie Shrand, the creator and host of <a href="http://www.sciencewithsophie.com/">Science with Sophie</a>, a science comedy series for girls and everyone. Sophie will share a live science demonstration, followed by a discussion about her startup, successful crowdfunding campaign, and where her entrepreneurial road is headed.<br /> <br /> This is a family friendly event so feel free to bring the children in your life, as well! Light refreshments will be served.<br /> <br /> <strong>About Science with Sophie:</strong><br /> <br /> <a href="http://www.sciencewithsophie.com/">Science with Sophie</a> (SWS) is a fast-paced show inviting viewers to explore science all around them and remember that they are brave, curious, funny, smart scientists every day. With an all-female writing team and a wacky cast of characters (all played by Sophie), the show is Sophie&rsquo;s light-hearted solution to the serious problem of inequity in STEM fields and under representation of women in mainstream science media.<br /> <br /> <strong>About Sophie Shrand:</strong><br /> <br /> Sophie Shrand is a science educator, comedian, and actor with degrees in Neuroscience and Theatre from Northeastern University, Boston. She has researched humans and cocaine, held brains in her palm, generated three-story lightning bolts, and worked with a racist red-tailed hawk. In addition to founding SWS, Sophie develops educational programming at the Museum of Science and Industry, Chicago, teaching 24,000 students per year. Sophie insists she can eat a literal bunch of kale in one sitting, but no one has agreed to bear witness.
