Ainissa Ramirez – The Alchemy of Us: Uncovering Hidden Figures in Science Whose Inventions Changed Our Way of Life

February 23, 2023 @ 7:30 pm

Free

An award-winning scientist, science communicator and author, Dr. Ainissa Ramirez promotes a love of exploration, making complex scientific processes both clear and mesmerizing to just about everyone. In her recent book The Alchemy of Us, Ramirez showcases little-known inventors – particularly people of color and women – who had a significant impact but whose accomplishments have been hidden by mythmaking, bias and convention. Doing so, she shows us the power of telling inclusive stories about technology. She also shows that innovation is universal – whether it’s splicing beats with two turntables and a microphone or splicing genes with two test tubes and CRISPR.
