- Each Science Talks! event included discussions, student-led Q&A sessions, and open laboratories.
- Created in partnership with the Mortimer B. Zuckerman Mind Brain Behavior Institute and BioBus.
- Ellie Hisama (Professor; Department of Music)

- Funds supported a podcast to document the legacy, musical excellence, and experience of female composers in electronic music at the Computer Music Center.
- These podcasts started conversations on the treatment of women, LGBTQ+, non-binary, and non-white composers at Columbia and in the fields of music and technology as a whole.
- The project hopes that sharing this hidden history would encourage more women and girls to decide to work in music technology, computer music, electronic music.
