The Fort Edward Free Library is sponsoring a FREE Bus Trip for an exciting day of activities celebrating the amazing women scientists of the New York State Museum!  In recognition of the U.N. International Day of Women and Girls in Science we bring you this program  honoring the women working in science at the New York State Museum.  Talks, collection tours, “Ask the Scientist” sessions and hands-on activities will be happening all day.  Meet the scientists and find out about their inspiring work.  The day includes hands-on activities that allow YOU to be the scientist!  Examine specimens from our collections and ask questions of the women working in science at the edge of human discovery and preserving the wealth of knowledge in museum collections.  Cultural Anthropology, Bioarcheology, Archeology, Malacology, Botany, Geology and Paleontology are some of the fields represented in this amazing all day extravaganza!  Please contact the Fort Edward Free Library 518-747-6743 to register.  The bus will depart from the Fort Edward High School at 9 a.m. and return at 5 p.m.
