Panels at San Diego Comic-Con International are a great way to connect with community - whether that's popular culture fandom, makers, artists, or science nerds. Join the IF/THEN Ambassadors as they use their scientific expertise to illuminate the STEM behind popular arts, and learn how they are diversifying these fields so that everyone can pursue their STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, math) dreams.
