Women in Science

The Friends of the National Zoo’s Department of Education and Volunteer Services is pleased to announce the first in a series of career panel events featuring Women in Science at the National Zoo. The panel will be held on Wednesday, June 5th, 2013 from 3:30 until 5:00 pm in the Zoo’s Visitor Center Auditorium.

This event will feature six women representing a variety of backgrounds and experiences, coming together to discuss what it’s like to work at the National Zoo. Participants will hear from women in the fields of zoo keeping, research, veterinary medicine and biology about the challenges and rewards of working alongside amazing animals every day. Following the initial question and answer session, students will have the opportunity to talk with panel members in a small group setting.

Registration for the Women in Science at the National Zoo career panel has reached its capacity, and is now closed. Thank you for your interest in the panel; please check the Smithsonian events calendar for further career themed events at the Zoo and throughout the Smithsonian:
