About this Event

Dive into the power of science and art through comics!

The Women in Science Committee of the Association of Spanish Researchers in the USA (ECUSA) and the artist Quan Zhou present Ellas son Ciencia (Women are Science), an exhibition merging visual storytelling and science, created to highlight the extraordinary work and experiences of women in science through the unique lens of comics. This exhibition is part of the project of the same name, which aims to create and promote Spanish female role models in STEM, demonstrating that talent and inspiration know no gender or geographic boundaries.

Join us for this special event on March 7th at 5pm at NYU-KJCC, featuring a discussion on the inspiration behind the project and the collaborative process involving members of ECUSA and Quan Zhou. Following the talk, there will be a networking session with complimentary snacks and drinks, providing attendees with the chance to explore the various artworks guided by the creative team.
