The Women in Science Luncheon Series
Created by a group of women affiliated with the Museum of Science as trustees, overseers, and donors, this unique forum enables an audience of interested women to hear about the research and life experiences of distinguished female scientists and engineers, exchange ideas, and make lasting connections.
Through stimulating conversations and active engagement with science and engineering professionals, the biannual Women in Science Luncheon Series encourages young women to pursue careers in the sciences. It also contributes to the Museum’s goal of helping adults become more informed about the concepts and tools we all need to navigate our rapidly evolving technological world.

The Mission of the Museum of Science
The Museum's mission is to play a leading role in transforming the nation's relationship with science and technology. This role becomes ever more important as science and technology shape and reshape our lives and world, and it means we:
- Promote active citizenship informed by the world of science and technology
- Inspire lifelong appreciation of the importance and impact of science and engineering
- Encourage young people of all backgrounds to explore and develop their interests in understanding the natural and human-made world
To do this, we will continue to build our position as a leader in the world's museum community and use our educational perspective as an informal learning institution to help the formal pre K-12 education system.
