Inventive Women: Portraits of Scientists and Engineers
The exhibit was produced for the Minnesota History Center by Nancy G. Johnson, a communications specialist in the Mechanical Engineering Department who received an IDEA (Innovation, Diversity, Equity, and Achievement) grant from the University's Office of Equity and Diversity to create it. The Science and Engineering Library is bringing the exhibit to Walter in honor of the 50th Anniversary of the Women's Center (the focus of a new exhibit at Andersen Library).
The exhibit also features collections from the University Archives highlighting the changing perception of female students majoring in the scientific and engineering disciplines at the University of Minnesota over the last century, from "feminine invaders" to "competent female engineers."
Free and open to the public
The reception will be followed by a History of Science and Technology Colloquium in the Upson Room (Walter 102) and will feature Sally Kohlstedt, a featured faculty member, and her latest book, Teaching Children Science: Hands-On Nature Study in America, 1890-1930, with commentators Nancy Beadie of the University of Washington and Pamela Henson of the Smithsonian Institution Archives.
