Women in Science and Math Wikipedia Workshop

Sunday, February 23, 2014, from 1:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Description

Women in Math and Science Club will be hosting a Wikipedia Workshop during which we will teach students how to write, edit, and expand Wikipedia articles about women scientists and mathematicians who have done ground-breaking, field-redefining work and yet do not have the proper recognition they deserve. We will supply the event attendees with the reference materials to create the articles, as well as detailed instruction on how to properly paraphrase and reference these materials. Our hope is to encourage students to be more aware of the brilliant women in the fields of science and mathematics as well as expand prevalence of women scientists on Wikipedia.
