The 90-minute presentation begins at 1:30pm and will be divided into 3 equal segments: 30 minutes of introductory background remarks, 30 minutes of “debate,” and then 30 minutes of questions from the audience. Wonderfest is unique in that pairs of articulate and accomplished researchers discuss and debate compelling questions at the edge of scientific understanding
