2016 Sturm Lecture

spaceFrom Professor of Astronomy Seth Redfield:

Mae Jemison is the 2016 Sturm Lecturer and will be giving a public lecture next Tuesday, April 19th at 8pm in the Ring Family Performing Arts Hall (formerly the CFA Hall). Her talk is entitled, “Exploring the Frontiers of Science and Human Potential”. She is a former astronaut, served in the Peace Corp, is a physician by training, majored in engineering and African and Afro-American Studies at Stanford, is a fierce advocate for STEM education, and is currently leading the 100 Year Starship Project… and that is just some of the things she has done.

Bring your friends, family, and classmates. There will be a reception following the public lecture at the Observatory (and the telescopes will be open if it is clear).

Date: Tuesday, April 19
Time: 8:00-9:30 PM

Panel members include:
  • Richard Zeff, the Assistant Dean of Admission at Uconn’s School of Medicine
  •  Mary Keefe, Director of Admission at the Yale School of Public Health
  •  And Cheryl-Ann Hagner, Director of Graduate Student Services at Wesleyan (to talk about the BA/MA program)
  •  As well as graduate/medical students from various schools
