On December 8, 2014, the New York Academy of Sciences and PepsiCo will host a special Journey through Science Day at the Academy's headquarters in New York City. Fifty exceptional students and early career scientists (MS, PhD, postdoc) will be selected for this unique opportunity to interact with PepsiCo's R&D leadership, learn about their efforts to develop products rooted in science-based nutrition, and get an exclusive glimpse of how science has shaped their careers. Additionally, each participant will be asked to present a poster on their research to highlight and share their own activities and interests with PepsiCo. There will be an award ceremony for the best posters at the end of the event. To advertise the event around your campus, you can use the flyer at www.nyas.org/PepsiCoFlyer
