Human Detectors: A Scientific Approach to Increasing the Number of Women in Science – Evalyn Gates

Date: Mon. October 13th, 2008, 4:15 pm-5:15 pm
Location: DeGrace 312

What do the search for the mysterious dark matter that pervades the Universe, and the search to understand the underrepresentation of women in university physical science departments have in common? Both challenges require a lot of hard work and a clear understanding of the problem – including a careful analysis of the detectors we use and the unavoidable backgrounds that affect our results. We need to approach the question of women in math and science with the same enthusiasm and skill that we bring to our explorations of the cosmos – and start thinking more like scientists.
