Mather Dining Hall A&B

Monday, December 10th, 12-1:30 PM

Why are nearly half of high school physics students female, but only 21% percent of those who earn bachelors degrees in physics? Why are there still fewer female professors of physics than in any other scientific field, including math? We’ll explore the problems, the solutions, and see if history can shed any light on why.
