On Saturday, March 9, Notkin was the special guest as Cox Creative Studies hosted a behind-the-scenes look at the making of The STEM Journals. Fans of the show took part in several mock filming sessions with Geoff, where they served as camera operators, directors, producers, editors, and even on-camera interviewers. The event highlighted the science and technology that fuels The STEM Journals and Cox telecommunications services.
