PANEL DISCUSSION: MAKING EARTH SCIENCE ACCESSIBLE AND RELEVANT
On Sunday 30 May our Geoeducator Sasha participated in a panel about the pop-up touring exhibition '100 women, 100 words... Infinite Possibilities'. Sasha shared her journey in science and geology with the audience. In her current role with the Waitaki Whitestone Geopark, her passion is to make Earth Science accessible and relevant to our communities.
We are proud to have such a great role model as part of the Waitaki Whitestone Geopark team and hope we can inspire many to take up a career in STEM.
The touring exhibition:
What does a scientist look like? Otago Museum touring exhibition 100 women, 100 words... infinite possibilities responds to that question, and the answer is… anything! From punk rock engineers to stay-at-home mothers, from senior university academics, to young girls with big dreams; scientists are everywhere and science is all around us.
The Forrester Gallery is hosting this exhibition for a short time, so come visit and celebrate the women nominated by Otago Southland as those who actively live and work with STEM (science, technology, engineering, maths) in all areas of their lives.
100 women, 100 words... infinite possibilities features beautiful digital portraits by local photographers paired with reflections from the subjects themselves of how science, technology, engineering, and maths has helped shape who they are and what they do.
The exhibition can be viewed at the Forrester Gallery until 8 June 2021.
