Lecture: “Too Creative for Science” (see event flyer)

Speaker: Dr. Ahna Skop ’94, Professor of Genetics, University of Wisconsin-Madison

Have you ever wondered what it is like to grow up in a family of artists and then end up a scientist? What does thinking like an artist offer the scientist? Can the blending of art and science encourage a more diverse population of students to pursue science, and improve the public understanding of science? Dr. Skop will give you an exciting glimpse into her life and how she has impacted science, education, and the public with her two passions: science and art.
