500 Women Scientists is partnering with taste of science for the 2018 festival by hosting a Science Salon. Science is integral to sustaining a healthy planet and thriving communities. Find out how, as our three speakers explore the connection between their scientific research and issues of climate change, resiliency, and environmental sustainability. This event, co-hosted by the NYC Pod of 500 Women Scientists and the NYC chapter of EcoWomen, is part of a campaign organized by the national 500 Women Scientists organization to raise funds for our partner organization, Ciencia Puerto Rico, as they work to transform science education in Puerto Rico.
