uOttawa WISE is a branch of WISE Ottawa, which is hosting an evening of learning
and inspiration going back to our roots. Professor and Dr. Monique Frize,
one of WISE Ottawa’s pioneers, will be speaking about the amazing life of
Laura Bassi, an esteemed 18th Century Bolognese scientist and professor
who completed over 60 theses. Dr. Frize’s presentation will be based on
her book about Laura Bassi, including research done by Dr. Gabriella
Berti-Logan, to whom the book is dedicated. Join us to celebrate a female
visionary and how her legacy has helped forge opportunities and choices for
all women in science and engineering.
Wine and cheese will be served and
Dr. Frize’s book will also be available for sale.
There is no admission fee.
