Breakthrough Festival

February 15, 2021 @ 8:00 am - February 21, 2021 @ 5:00 pm

Breakthrough Festival

Join Science Friday and 500 Women Scientists from February 15-21, 2021 for the week-long Breakthrough Festival, amplifying the voices of women scientists.

Each day will focus on a different video from the Breakthrough series produced by Science Friday and HHMI Tangled Bank Studios. Learn about ancient birds, killer snails, epigenetics, accessibility in STEM, sneeze spread, help build community, and more. We’ll even have the chance to participate in a Wikipedia Edit-a-Thon to expand the representation of women in science.

The Breakthrough Festival is a science learning event series for all ages featuring interactive online activities and conversations highlighting equity and women in STEM. RSVP for any—or all!—of the events, and join the conversation online using the hashtags #BreakthroughFestival or tag @500womensci and @scifri.

RSVP here.
