Women and Girls in Science
Saturday, May 7, 2011
10:00 am - 3:00 pm
Adirondack Interpretive Center in Newcomb, NY
Women and Girls in Science Day is a day-long special event featuring an exciting mix of outdoor explorations, in-door activities and conversations, and two Women in Science panel discussions.
The day will "start" at 9AM with a one-hour guided bird walk, sponsored by Northern New York Audubon, followed by the formal start of the day a series of concurrent activity sessions between 10 and 11 and then the first panel discussion at 11-12.
After lunch, we will have a second panel from 1-2 and will conclude with another group of concurrent activities and walks.
Activities will include: a field trip to explore vernal pools; a guided conversation "Why Philosophers Care What Scientists Think"; Pulp to Paper –How to make your own; How what salamanders eat tells us about forest health; and several others sessions and activities.
The panels will showcase a mix of female student-scientists and professional women in the sciences sharing their perspectives on their careers, the importance of mentoring and role models, and the power of early exposure to the natural world. The 60-minute panels will include a generous Q and A session allowing members of the audience to interact with the panel.
