WOMAN IN MOTION

Searching for Life through Space and Time

with ERIN REDWING

Monday, March 15, 2021   LIVE STREAM

“Woman in Motion,” explores the intersection of the arts and science, technology, engineering, and mathematics through the captivating story of Nichelle Nichols, an icon of the much loved "Star Trek" series turned NASA recruiter. The documentary compiles footage and interviews from Nichols’ career to explore her transition from a pop culture icon to the recipient of NASA’s Public Service Award, which lauded her efforts to make the study of space more accessible for women and minorities.


Livestream Q&A on Monday, March 15th at 8:00 pm -

Let Erin Redwing, a PhD candidate in Earth and Planetary Science at UC Berkley take you from the surface of Mars and the icy moons of Jupiter and Saturn, as she looks for clues to how life takes hold. How do we answer such fundamental questions as: “Where did we come from?”, “How did we get here?” and “Are we alone?”

Reading and Writing the Code of Life with

DR. MEGAN HOCHSTRESSER, Education Program Manager,

Innovative Genomics Institute

Wednesday, March 24, 2021 National Science on Screen Day

A breakthrough called CRISPR has given us unprecedented control over the basic building blocks of life. It opens the door to curing diseases, reshaping the biosphere, and designing our own children. Human Nature is a provocative exploration of CRISPR’s far-reaching implications, through the eyes of the scientists who discovered it, the families it’s affecting, and the bioengineers who are testing its limits. How will this new power change our relationship with nature? What will it mean for human evolution? To begin to answer these questions we must look back billions of years and peer into an uncertain future.

 

Wednesday, March 24th LIVESTREAM Q&A at 8:00 PM PST

Dr. Hochstrasser will explore the ethical questions raised by CRISPR, the technology that gives us the ability to manipulate the human genome. Could it possibly transform our future as a species?  Moderated by Cathy Buck

 

About Innovative Genomics: The Innovative Genomics Institute believes in the potential of genome engineering to solve some of humanity’s greatest problems like world hunger and human diseases.

What do you picture when you think about a scientist? For the longest of time, the most prominent image would probably have been a man in a white lab coat. But it’s 2020, and we all know that scientists actually come in a variety of genders, colors, sizes and outfits, to name but a few. But what is it really like being a scientist who does not fit that ‘traditional’ image? 

Who do you picture when you think about a scientist? Dr. Willinbring, who is featured in the film spells out the collective cost of sexism within within the science community and how hard it is for female scientists to overcome bias.
