Have you ever been inspired by a woman scientist? Help others be inspired too!

Please join the Bentley Historical Library staff, AWIS (Association of Women in Science) and WISE (Women in Science and Engineering) to help create visibility for female scientists.

We will be highlighting the accomplishments of female scientists from UM who have archived papers at the Bentley.
Come join us as Bentley Historical Library staff help us create a wikipedia page for one or two important UM female scientists for which no page exists.

We will divide into groups that will review Bentley archival material for different sections of the Wikipedia entry. No Wikipedia editing experience necessary, we will teach you how in a short workshop.

*Please bring your laptops
* Open to any interested student

Coffee and brunch from Afternoon Delight will be available.
