Women of Science at the New York State Museum

state museum from plazaHalf of the research and collections professionals at the State Museum are women, and on February 10 it has a whole day of events lined up to highlight the science and research in which these women are engaged. Blurbage:

In recognition of the U.N. International Day of Women and Girls in Science we bring you this program honoring the women working in a variety of scientific discliplines right here in downtown Albany. Lectures, "Ask the Scientist" sessions, and scientific activities will be happening throughout the day.
The day includes hands-on activities that allow YOU to be the scientist. Examine specimens from our collections and ask questions of the women working in science at the edge of human discovery and preserving the wealth of knowledge in museum collections. Cultural Anthropology, Bioarchaeology, Archeology, Malacology, Botany, Geology and Paleontology are some of the fields represented in this amazing all-day extravaganza!

If you follow that link above, there are details about the events, along with short profiles of many of the scientists who will be participating.

The events are from 10 am-4 pm on Saturday, February 10. It's free.
