Teen Science Cafe | An Electric Heart

December 11 @ 4:45 pm 6:00 pm

Kandace Thomas

The heart is a complex organ powered by electricity to move blood throughout an entire organism. In this Teen Science Cafe, we will explore the cells responsible for electrical activity in the heart, cardiac pacemaking cells, and what characteristics these cells need to function.

In addition to her studies, Kandace is a published author and entrepreneur; she aspires to be an undergraduate Biology professor after she graduates in Fall 2021.
