What better way to inspire the next generation of women scientists than to meet working scientists, tour their labs, and learn about their paths to exciting careers? Women in labs from anthropology, neural science, physics, and more opened their doors to NYC high school girls at universities throughout the city, including New York University, Columbia University, and CUNY’s City College. Students had the rare opportunity to experience the work of several prominent scientists as they cycled through the labs to learn about the fields, meet the scientists, and be inspired to follow in their paths.
This program was produced in collaboration with the College of Arts and Science at New York University (NYU) and the Women in Science program (WINS), Columbia University and the City College of New York.
