Women in Science & Art

Liberty Science Center is celebrating Women in Science & Art, March 9-17!

Throughout this weeklong event, LSC will host workshops, presentations, experiments, and more adventures shining a spotlight on women in science, technology, art, and more. All ages are welcome as we bring out amazing role models representing multiple fields and career opportunities.

Highlights include:

  • Get a glimpse into history as we are joined by actors portraying pioneers of the past! As you explore the building, stop for a quick chat with figures from different historical eras.

  • Join us for special labs and studios inspired by innovators in different fields. Make flowers and explore the science of chromatography in the spirit of Georgia O’Keeffe. Experiment with computer coding at our Ada Lovelace-inspired lab. Learn about aerospace engineering and perform aircraft testing like Mary Jackson, recently portrayed on film in “Hidden Figures.”

  • Experience LSC’s first live podcast when author, comedian, and brain injury survivor Mimi Hayes records an episode of her podcast “Mimi and the Brain” in LSC’s Interactive Theater. (March 9, 12:00 pm)

  • Join Natasha Dzurny from the company TechnoChic to learn about circuitry while creating your very own wearable tech! (March 9, 10:00 am – 4:00 pm)

  • Learn about binary coding and create your own binary bracelets from women professionals when we are joined by Infosys, a global leader in next-generation digital services and consulting. (March 12–15, 10:00 am – 4:00 pm)

  • Get hands-on with equipment used in the military such as bomb disposal robots, VR headsets, and 3D printers and meet the women engineers behind them when we’re joined by Picatinny Arsenal, the leading hub of military technology and engineering innovation. (March 14 & 15, 10:00 am – 4:00 pm)

  • Meet female robotics teams from organizations like the FIRST LEGO League, FIRST Tech Challenge, and World Robotics Olympiad Association as they show off their coding, tech, and design skills. (March 16, 10:00 am – 4:00 pm)

  • Explore space with Victoria Robinson, co-founder of the Robinson Family Aerospace Mission, via an interactive space exploration game that teaches the basics of being an astronaut. (March 16, 10:00 am – 4:00 pm)

  • Get knocked off your feet with Nitcha Tothong, a multi-disciplinary designer and technologist, as she demonstrates her Click-Kick device that combines footwear with computer programming. (March 17, 10:00 am – 4:00 pm)

  • Learn about women who followed their dreams from young women already on the path to following their own! On March 17, Girl Scouts pursuing their Gold Award will be on site giving presentations on female leaders. (March 17, 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm)
