International Day of Women and Girls in Science

| February 11, 2019

In November, Women in Technology @ Columbia University (WIT@CU), an initiative to support and increase the numbers of women in IT across the university, hosted a Networking Mixer in the Smith Learning Theater. As a complement for the event, TC librarians curated a special collection showcasing our materials on women in science and technology-  everything from biographies of women scientists, to histories of common products invented by women, to investigations into the historical paucity of women in science, to electronics makers kits geared towards young girls. Since today is the International Day of Women and Girls in Science, it’s also an excellent occasion to revisit this collection. Below, take a look at some pictures of the event, the titles we showcased, and be sure to check out some of these items for yourself and the women scientists in your life.
