National Science on Screen® Day

Searching for Life
Across Space & Time

From the surface of Mars and the icy moons of Jupiter and Saturn, Erin looks for clues to how life takes hold.  “Where did we come from?”, “How did we get here?” and “Are we alone?”

PhD student  in Earth and Planetary Science, UC Berkeley and
Wonderfest Ambassador


 While Uhura’s story tells the world that space is anybody’s domain, Nichelle Nichols reinforced this statement in 1977 by recruiting  8,000 men and woman of color into NASA's space program. Now, over 30 years later,  she still is inspiring a new generation to keep their eyes on the stars.

Reading and Writing

Could CRISPER manipulation of the human genome transform our futures as a species?

“Every “Oh wow” in “Human Nature” is matched by an “Oh no” somewhere down the line. Together, these two competing emotions...make for one pretty fascinating documentary.” – The New York Times (Critic’s Pick)

 “A meticulously researched work that brings the secrets of CRISPR to the layperson…10/10” – Washington Post

Closing the STEM
Gender Gap





New perspectives on how to make science itself more diverse, equitable, and open to all.

DR. JANE WILLENBRING,
Associate Professor of Geological Sciences, Stanford , featured in film.
Wonderfest Ambassador

What do you picture when you think about a scientist? For the longest of time, the most prominent image would probably have been a man in a white lab coat. But it’s 2020, and we all know that scientists actually come in a variety of genders, colours, sizes and outfits, to name but a few. But what is it really like being a scientist who does not fit that ‘traditional’ image?

8:00 PM PST - Livestream Q&A
Film screens March 31 to April 3 online

This film is the first in a series of three Science on Screen® events this March, featuring “Women of Science.” We partnered with Wonderfest to explore the importance of accessibility to STEM fields for women, a subject closely linked to Nichols’ own life work. Science on Screen® is a project of the Coolidge Corner Theater with support from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation.
