November Seminar

Wednesday, November 18, 2009 - 12:00 - 1:00pm


     Women's Interchange at SLAC (WIS) is pleased to present

   Professor Helen Quinn
                                                   SLAC Theoretical Physics    

                                                                 speaking on
                                                 "What is Science"

SLACís esteemed theoretical physicist Helen Quinn will use
her 40+ years of experience in physics, science education and
outreach to address what might seem like a basic question.

Professor Quinn has found that the general public and
scientists donít always share a common understanding of
science Ė how it is conducted, how progress comes about, and
what its inherent values and limitations are. Some of her
insights may surprise you.

Professor Quinn, former APS President and winner of the
DIRAC Medal, is retiring from SLAC at the end of this year.
