  • Women in STEM - HONR 293O H01, meets Wednesdays from 4-5:15 p.m. in ARM-D 207. Kathryn E. Williamson. 

    Why are women still underrepresented in STEM fields? In this book club, we will read the stories of women scientists as a window into the ways, both big and small, that they have navigated the current culture of STEM. Our discussion will be supplemented by a variety of other sources, such as articles, videos, and guest speakers.
  • Climate Conversations - HONR 293P H01, meets Thursdays from 4-5:15 p.m. in ARM-D 207. Kathryn E. Williamson.

    We as humans on this planet have an impact and a responsibility like never before in history. However, the climate crisis can feel too overwhelming to tackle, or too distant and obscure, or too swept up in politics. But as esteemed climate scientist Katharine Hayhoe says, “the most important thing we can do is talk about it.” This book club keeps discussion at the forefront as we read both fiction and non-fiction books about climate change, supplemented by a variety of other articles, videos, and guest speakers.
  • Paradoxical Journey - HONR 293W H02, meets Mondays from 11 a.m.-12 p.m. in ESB-E 711. Mario George Perhinschi.

    The chicken or the egg? Discussion-driven introduction to some of the most famous paradoxes and their relationship to basic concepts, theories, and methodologies in science and technology.
