On May 12, 2016, the Women’s Board of the Adler Planetarium will host its annual Women in Space Science Award Celebration. For fourteen years, the Women’s Board has recognized trailblazing women in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) with the goal of inspiring young women to pursue careers in these disciplines. The celebration features a luncheon reception for event attendees and a keynote presentation given by this year’s honoree, Professor Wendy L. Freedman. Following the luncheon, approximately 250 young women from Chicago-area schools will participate in an afternoon of engaging STEM workshops at the Adler. The Women in Space Science Award Celebration raises funds to support the Adler’s STEM education programs including Girls Do Hack and Girls’ Technology Camp.
