Biographical Information:


Photo of Ambassador Benjamin Parris I've been lecturing on one topic or another for the past twenty years but nothing has been more exhilarating than the lectures, demonstrations, and activities I have devised and shared with the public because of the Solar System Ambassador Program. I started out an Advanced Placement Physics student and got attracted to the world of business, becoming a business technology specialist. Of all science topics I've always been most taken with planetary studies, attempting to soak up every known fact and help others make sense of it. As Director of the Long Island Museum of Science & Technology, I have been able to take advantage of a unique opportunity to create a solar system activity program with the kind of science and technology outreach visibility we have not seen in Nassau County for over a dozen years.
