Stem cells--they're talked about in the news and you probably can more or less describe what they are but do you really know what they can do?

X297: R U an E or an I? in Splash Splash Fall 2015 (Nov. 14, 2015)
Our society applauds students that speak up in class and praise those that socialize well ("He's the life of the party" or "She's the social butterfly") but what about those of us that hate talking in class, prefer our own thoughts, and become exhausted when overstimulated? In this session, we'll explore how our personality type affects how we communicate and function in with the world we live in.
