Event Series: Black History Month
For Black History Month, Curieus is hosting conversations with African American scientists, including the first female black tenured professor of neurosurgery, and the father of multi-core processors. In these two events, Curieus leaders will engage in hour-long fireside chats with the scientists to ask about their experience in STEM fields, providing role models from underrepresented backgrounds for the students we impact.
