What is the exhilarating moment of discovery? Young Nerds of Color takes you inside the science lab where ideas can flow like jazz improvisation. Assembled from over 60 interviews with scientists – established and emerging, rock stars and renegades – playwright Melinda Lopez weaves together their challenges, successes, and wildest dreams. Told from the perspective of those most underrepresented in science, their stories are amplified with rich harmonies to bring us together to break down the boundaries of science. Join us to discover what is possible.
