Our section will participate in a Street Fair at ChathamFest on June 9th. This fair goes rain or shine so we hope for nice weather. The booth will be sponsored by the Student Affiliates of Fairleigh Dickensen. This is one of the series of fairs in which we will show “The Faces of Chemistry” the National Chemistry Week theme for this year.
WGBH is working on a new project, Extraordinary Women Engineers Project, and we are looking for young women engineers as potential subjects for video and text profiles on a Web site we are developing with the National Academy of Engineering. We’re looking for chemical engineers and wondered if you might have any leads on potential candidates. We are especially looking for women in the Boston area, but not exclusively. Because we’re looking for someone who will inspire high school girls, we’d prefer candidates that are just starting out in their career.
