Women in STEM:
Insights from Social Psychology
Saturday, March 28, 2015
9 AM - 4 PM
Julius S. Held Lecture Hall
304 Barnard Hall
New York, NY
Women, and particularly women of color, are
underrepresented in science, technology,
engineering, and math (STEM) fields. Although
numerous factors contribute to this
underrepresentation, recent research has shown
that stereotypes about both kinds of people who
succeed at STEM and about the work itself inhibit
the engagement, persistence, and performance of
women and women of color. Over the last decade,
abundant research in social psychology has
documented the causes and consequences of
STEM-relevant stereotypes. Recent investigations
have identified strategies that produce resilience
in the face of stereotypes and negative cues that
signal low representation. This meeting will bring
together social psychologists, education
researchers, and STEM educators to discuss
evidence-based interventions for reducing gender
barriers in academic and professional

The Chlorine Revolution
Friday, April 10, 2015
7pm - 8:30pm
It can be argued that using chlorine in drinking
water created the biggest
improvement in public health in modern history.
Typhoid fever was not eradicated in the U.S. until
the widespread use of water disinfection was
Join Dr. Michael McGuire author of The Chlorine
Revolution as he recounts
the story of how chlorine first got introduced
into municipal drinking water
supplies. He will also introduce you to Dr.
John L. Leal, a forgotten hero of public health.
A Challenge for Students to Design
a DNA Analysis Experiment for Space!
exploration poses intriguing questions about
life beyond Earth. To
answer them, Genes in Space
invites students in grades 7
through 12 to propose a pioneering DNA amplification experiment to occur
aboard the International Space Station powered by miniPCR
Help design a pioneering
experiment that will open an era of DNA
exploration in space.
Crew: U.S. students and teachers interested in
science, technology, and space, in grades 7
Location: International Space Station.
Contest Launch Date: March 17, 2015.
Closing Date: April 30, 2015.
Life as we know it is encoded in DNA. On Earth
we use a process called PCR (Polymerase Chain
Reaction) to rapidly detect and analyze DNA. PCR
can make billions of copies of specific DNA
sequences for study, in a process called DNA
amplification. PCR has never been done in space,
and now you can be among the first to propose a
DNA amplification experiment for the
International Space Station.
If you win, your design will become one of the
first ever DNA experiments in space!
