Introducing Scirens Show

Are you sci-curious? Do you agree that the world should be celebrating and supporting science (and critical thinking) right about now? Then you’ll love Scirens Show, premiering Tuesday April 7th at 9AM PST.

Join Hollywood multi-hyphenates Taryn O’Neill, Tamara Krinsky, and Gia Mora as they get together ‘virtually’ to chat about STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and math) articles that have their brains buzzing. Tell the Screen Scirens for Science what you’re curious about. Leave a comment or hit us up on social media!
