More Hidden Figures: Women in Science
with Eileen Kreutz
In-Person Class with Online Option
Education Ctr, room 103
Remember Hidden Figures, the very popular film about female math whizzes who helped get us into space? This class follows a similar theme: that of more-or-less forgotten women who played critical roles in discovery across a number of scientific fields. Through the use of videos and biographical research, we will collectively bring a list of women into clear view and thereby honor their works and discoveries.
To accomplish this goal, we will employ a study group format, used by many senior colleges around the country, asking participants to search for a bit more information on just one female scientist of their choice (list of choices to be provided).
In the following week, participants will share their research, using videos, biographical information, and storytelling. The class will bring these hidden figures to life and give them long-deserved recognition for some amazing work.
This class will have 3 sessions:
February 2 & 9
