20 Famous Women Scientists and Engineers with a Lot to Say
<p>For over 28 years, the Institute for Science, Engineering and Public Policy (ISEPP) has provided public education and dialogue with leaders and experts from the major branches of science and disciplines of engineering. The institute’s main vehicle for these conversations was through the Linus Pauling Memorial lecture series, which was run and organized in it’s later years by Terry Bristol.</p><p>The guiding premise of the institute was that science and engineering were pivotal in the transformation of modern life. The website put it this way: “If our technological enterprises are to enhance human well-being, then both the problems and the potentials of these ventures must be better understood by nontechnical professionals and ordinary citizens, as well as by scientists and engineers.”</p><p>This slideshow is a collection of the women scientists and engineers who participated in the lecture series over the years. Though this well received and long-running program ended in 2018, the voices and presentations can still be found on the ISEPP.org <a href="https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCfATlShNJ21IMXs4hC9b76Q/videos">Youtube site</a>.</p>
