We are now accepting applications for the Women in Chemistry Professional Development Grant! This grant provides funding for women graduate students and post-docs in the Department of Chemistry to attend leadership and research conferences. The goals of this program are to increase attendance and participation of women at research conferences and to increase accessibility of leadership conferences to women in the Chemistry Department.

The MIT Museum will be holding its annual Girls Day on March 4th! This year’s theme is math. Last year WIC ran a booth where students could extract the chlorophyll from spinach leaves and observe how it fluoresces (red!) under UV light. It’s very exciting to see a photo from our demo used to promote this year’s event!
