Join us to get the first look at the APS Museum's latest exhibition --- Pursuit & Persistence: 300 Years of Women in Science.
Pursuit & Persistence: 300 Years of Women in Science invites visitors to learn about these scientists who used their boundless curiosity to make discoveries and break barriers regardless of the roadblocks they encountered. The exhibition includes dozens of documents, publications, and artifacts from the APS’s extensive collections and private lenders—most never exhibited before. Throughout the exhibition, contemporary artworks by Rebecca Kamen aid interpretation of the scientists’ discoveries in visual form and celebrate their achievements.
Enjoy light, casual refreshments and explore the exhibition. Discover the remarkable minds that sculpted science over the past 300 years, from the Enlightenment to space exploration. The Museum staff will be available throughout the evening for any questions and behind the scenes information.
