Little Materials, Big Stories – Women Nanoscientists tell their stories
Ever wondered what the life of a nanoscientitst is like? Wondering what it would be like being a female scientist in physics, chemistry or engineering – areas of science largely populated by male scientists?
The free annual MacDiarmid Regional Lecture Series kicks off in Tauranga on Monday – this year focusing on Women in Nanoscience.
These are personal stories, told by women scientists from the MacDiarmid Institute.
These free public talks in six locations around New Zealand (Tauranga, Napier, Whanganui, Nelson, Wanaka and Oamaru) will take you on a tour of the realities of life as a scientist and the research in the MacDiarmid Institute – from Chemistry to Physics to Engineering to Biology and beyond.
These talks are suitable for all levels and ages.
The next talk is in Wanaka:
Wanaka: Friday 6 October | Presbyterian Church Hall | 91 Tenby Street | Wanaka
You’ll find more information about all of the lectures below:
Some of the researcher’s stories are collected here.
