On December 1 Rick Crosslin will star in an annual Wayne Township treat, Science Claus is Coming to Town. New additions to this year’s cast of scientists are Guy Hansen, Coordinator of Lilly Science Education Outreach Program, and Keith Ramsey, Bridgeport Elementary teacher. Crosslin, science guru extraordinaire, is well known throughout Wayne Township Schools, the state, and beyond for his fantastical spin on science presentations. Sponsored by the Wayne Township Education Foundation, Science Claus Crosslin will take the big stage performing experiments at Ben Davis High School Theatre for one night only. The science show will be an hour long, followed by cookie decorating, and a visit from Santa. Tickets are $5 at the door or a donation of a new unwrapped toy. Proceeds benefit innovative programs that bring the curriculum to life in Wayne Township’s classrooms.
Admission is FREE. Tickets are required. Please click on the REGISTRATION link to register for this event.
“No Belles” is a performance of the stories of women scientists who have and have not received the Nobel Prize.
A significant disparity in our society is the number of women pursuing careers in STEM. An oft-cited reason for this imbalance is the lack of good role models. The Portal Theatre group’s “No Belles” makes visible the significant contributions of women in science and serves as a powerful catalyst for increased interactions between the sciences and the community. Notably, a performance of “No Belles” was hosted by the ACS in 2017 at the Fall National meeting as an adjunct to a symposium on the under representation of women in chemistry. It is outlined in C&EN’s Sept 11 2017 edition.
