Biology: From Molecules to Man focused on life from brain cells to fungus to the human heart. The scientists each presented a slideshow of their work before answering questions as a panel about their life, their work, and their accomplishments. The scientists answered questions about their role as an African American scientist, being a role model, the role of science and math in youth, and the future of science. The program was moderated by Jerry Revish, WBNS news anchor. The Center of Science and Industry in Columbus was one of ScienceMakers' science center partners in 2010, 2011, and 2012.
The featured scientists included Wayne Bowen, Brown University; George Jones, Emory University; Kwame Osei, The Ohio State University Medical Center; and John Watson, University of California, San Francisco.
During the day program, students videotaped short sessions with each scientist while they asked questions they had prepared with teachers ahead of time.
The school groups included Afrocentric Early College and Linden McKinley Middle/High School.
