To the ladies involved in science in Portland and the folks (including the fellas) who support them, are you ready to mix it up and network?
Women in Science’s Portland chapter is hosting the second of its biannual Mixer Happy Hour events for 2015, and just as in spring, it will again be held at the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry.
The event will run from 5:30 to 8 p.m. Nov. 11 at OMSI, 1945 S.E. Water Ave., and is open to women and their supporters across career levels and career types involving STEM fields. (STEM refers to the suite of disciplines that are science, technology, engineering and math.)
Appetizers will be available, and drinks can be purchased from the bar. Demonstrations relating to some of OMSI’s exhibits will be presented, and you have the chance to win prizes for taking part in networking games. Yellow Scope, a Portland-based company that makes science kits for girls, also will be showing off their kits. (Psst … We’ve reported on Yellow Scope on this blog before.)
The event is free, but organizers need a head count for the catering and museum security. Register on the event’s Event Brite page.
