Portland’s Yellow Scope featured at packed Women in Science mixer

Women in Science’s Portland chapter hosted the second installment of its biannual Mixer Happy Hour events for 2015 on Nov. 11 at the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry.

Women from various scientific disciplines or who support scientific institutions — and a few fellas — packed OMSI’s Theory cafe and reception space, which has a capacity of around 200 people. Various career levels, including students and professionals, were represented.

Attendees had the chance to meet, network and nosh on light hors d’oeuvres, featuring tuna and lamb offerings plus fresh tortilla chips and salsa. A few participants also won prizes from a drawing that was based on attendees meeting and getting the signatures of three new people. Prizes included OMSI After Dark tickets, books and (for one) a Yellow Scope science kit for girls.

Yellow Scope is a Portland-based company and their science kits have a chemistry focus. We’ve reported on Yellow Scope on this blog before, in a piece about Portland-area science resources for parents. Check out their display table at the mixer in the photo above.
