Suds & Science—Changing the World. Why Women in Science Matter.

Date & Time: March 5, 6:30 to approx. 8 p.m.

Location: Stone Brewing World Bistro & Garden Liberty Station, 2816 Historic Decatur Rd #116, San Diego, CA 92106

Cost: $5, Food and drinks available for purchase. Come early to place your food and drink order at the bar!

Suds & Science—Changing the World: Why Women in Science Matter. From cutting edge malaria research, to new hope for cystinosis patients, to internet security, to understanding the developing, adolescent brain. Women in science are changing the world. And even more important, they are changing how research is done. In 2013 the FDA advised women to cut their dose of the sleeping pill Ambient in half, as it was discovered that the active ingredient in the drug stayed in women’s bodies longer than in men. A fact that was overlooked in trials in drug development because of routine bias that does not include sex as a variable in scientific research. Many attribute that to the fact that what science decides to solve and how they solve it has a lot do with who is doing the research.

Join us as Dr. Stephanie Cherqui, Dr. Elizabeth Winzeler, Dr. Terry Jernigan and Dr. Kimberly Claffy share the important research they are doing, why we need more women in science and engineering and what their experience has been as women in science.

 

We are excited to host this event as part of the 21+ event series of the San Diego Festival of Science and Engineering and during the week of National Women's Day.

FLEET SCIENCE CENTER

"Realize a San Diego where everyone is connected to the power of science." 

- Our Mission Statement

 

The Fleet Science Center features more than 100 interactive science exhibits, as well as major traveling exhibitions. Visitors can touch a tornado, create colored shadows, examine the vibration of guitar strings and get their hands on a variety of intriguing scientific phenomena. 

 

The Fleet Science Center is also home to the world's first (and San Diego’s only) IMAX Dome Theater, presenting the biggest films on the planet. Its unique configuration wraps the audience in images and provides the illusion of being suspended in space. The Eugene Heikoff and Marilyn Jacobs Heikoff Dome Theater takes audiences from outer space to under water and every place in between, and films are generally suitable for all ages. San Diego's only Giant Dome Theater also plays host to planetarium shows, including the monthly Sky Tonight show, which is led by an astronomer and followed by outdoor telescope viewing, courtesy of the San Diego Astronomy Association.

 

The Fleet Science Center is open 365 days a year, starting at 10 a.m. 

We are located in beautiful Balboa Park, home to many of the city's museums, as well as beautiful gardens, intriguing architecture and picturesque fountains. Since our opening in 1973, the Fleet has been the best-attended museum in Balboa Park and a top attraction in San Diego. For more information, visit our website at www.fleetscience.org or call (619) 238-1233.

 

The Fleet Science Center offers:

  • More than 100 interactive exhibits
  • Studio X, where you can experiment, invent and create
  • Kid City, an exhibition just for kids ages five and under
  • Plus, Craveology Cafe and the North Star Science Store
