Pathways to Science Kick-off Event
To kick-off the start of our new mentorship program for women in science, PathSci, the founding members met for a celebration and, of course, some friendly competition. Members were invited to meet one another at the Princeton Plasma Physics Lab where we broke the ice with a Jeopardy-style game, Curie-osity. The game highlighted the achievements of women in science throughout the years.
After lunch, the mentor and mentee teams put their heads together to see which team could build the fastest solar car out of Legos. With only one hour of building time, teams put their ingenuity to the test and after several trials and tribulations, the race began. The team with the winning time received plasma globes for their victory.
From here, the mentor and mentee teams will work to create a a goal project for the mentorship program. They will present their work at our PathSci Summit, scheduled to take place on May 12, 2012.
