We need your help Thursday April 6 (12:15-1pm); see below for details and email iwoods@ithaca.edu if you'd like to help out.
 
Maki and Ian are organizing an impromptu biology-is-beautiful show as part of our publicity for the CP Snow lecture series here at IC. Never heard of CP Snow? The whole point is to build bridges between the arts and the sciences.
 
This year’s speaker - Cathy ONeil - is high profile and internationally renowned. She is a mathematician who studies the way in which algorithms can be systematically used to reinforce or generate cultural and racial biases (see mathbabe.org or https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cathy_O'Neil for more info). Her recent book - Weapons of Math Destruction - was nominated for the 2016 National Book Award for nonfiction, and is also on the New Yorker National Book Award Longlist:
 
 
Her talk is on April 20 at 7:30 pm in Textor. As part of our publicity efforts, we are planning a series of informal CP Snow mini-events around campus, to drum up interest in the speaker and the CP Snow scholarship opportunity, and to provide concrete examples of bridges between science and the humanities.
 
SO, we'd like to put together a little impromptu biology show in the long hallway (Textor-ish) during the lunch hour on Thursday April 6 (12:15-1pm). This event would involve looking at awesome biology stuff (worms! fish! yeast!) under microscopes, DNA extraction from cheek cells, food-color-milk artsy swirlies, and other fun things (playing with slug glue??!). We'd need help schlepping stuff over there, and help being enthusiastic about science, and help eating free donuts. We hope you awesome bio club folks might like to help!
 
ALSO - if you bridge the arts and the sciences in your own academic careers, consider applying for the CP Snow Scholar Award. For details, see /hs/events/series/cpsnow/scholar/
