Women of Science at the New York State Museum

Join us for an exciting day of activities celebrating the amazing scientists working at the New York State Museum!

Join us for an exciting day of activities celebrating the amazing scientists working at the New York State Museum! In recognition of the U.N. International Day of Women and Girls in Science we bring you this program honoring the women working in a variety of scientific disciplines right here in downtown Albany. Lectures, “Ask the Scientist” sessions, and scientific activities will be happening throughout the day.

The day includes hands-on activities that allow YOU to be the scientist. Examine specimens from our collections and ask questions of the women working in science at the edge of human discovery and preserving the wealth of knowledge in museum collections. Cultural anthropology, bioarchaeology, archeology, malacology, botany, geology, and paleontology are some of the fields represented in this amazing all-day extravaganza!
