Straight Talk: The Alchemy of Us (Book)

Thursday, November 12, 6:00 pm - 6:45 pm

The Connecticut Science Center is thrilled to welcome back renowned science evangelist and author Dr. Ainissa G. Ramirez. The virtual event will feature stories from her newest book and Amazon bestseller, The Alchemy of Us where she highlights eight inventions and how they shaped culture, chronicling each invention and its consequences―intended and unintended.
A popular and engaging presenter, Dr. Ramirez will make Connecticut connections and showcase little-known inventors―particularly people of color and women―who had a significant impact but whose accomplishments have been hidden by mythmaking, bias, and convention. The talk will be followed by a Q & A. While geared for an adult audience, this event is appropriate and recommended for older students and anyone interested in issues related to diversity, equity, inclusion, and access.
Presented by: Launc[H]
Straight Talk is a Women in Science Program
Founding Sponsor: The Petit Family Foundation
Additional Support from: Voya Financial and Vistra
