Picture a Scientist Film Screening & Panel Discussion 


Join the Hill-Lopes Scholars Program for a screening of the feature-length documentary film Picture a Scientist on Thurs. Mar. 2 at 6 p.m. in the University Union Theatre 

Picture a Scientist chronicles the groundswell of researchers who are writing a new chapter for women scientists. A biologist, a chemist and a geologist lead viewers on a journey deep into their own experiences in the sciences, overcoming brutal harassment, institutional discrimination, and years of subtle slights to revolutionize the culture of science. From cramped laboratories to spectacular field stations, viewers also encounter scientific luminaries who provide new perspectives on how to make science itself more diverse, equitable, and open to all.  After the film, there will be a talk-back panel featuring faculty members from the Fisher College of Science & Mathematics, College of Liberal Arts and The Office of Inclusion & Institutional Equity. Visit towson.edu/HillLopesEvents for more details.


Coding Competitions
Code/Art's coding competitions for girls and non-binary students in grades 3-12 are now live. This year we have 2 national creative coding competitions:  CodeYourSelf™ & Coded Animated Art. Both of these competitions are great motivators for students (from all skill levels) to combine coding skills and creativity to create their own masterpieces! 
All winners and finalists (for all 3-grade divisions) will be recognized at Code/Art Fest on March 11th, 2023 - an annual gathering to celebrate the achievements of young female coders and to increase awareness of opportunities in computing fields. For more information on prizes and guidelines for each category, click here
Submission Deadline: February 17th, 2023.
Dr. Anne-Marie Imafidon: She’s in CTRL 

Join the Hill-Lopes Scholars Program on Thurs. April 6 at 6 p.m. in University Union Ballrooms DE for an evening with Dr. Anne-Marie Imafidon for a keynote about her book She’s in CTRL, a guidebook for women to take back tech.  

Dr. Imafidon is the co-founder of Stemettes, an award-winning social initiative dedicated to inspiring and promoting the next generation of young women in the STEM sectors. Since its inception 10 years ago, it has exposed more than 60,000 girls across Europe to her vision for a more diverse and balanced science and tech community. Deemed a prodigy, Dr. Imafidon was the youngest girl ever to pass A-level Computing at age 11, and was just 20 years old when she received her Master’s Degree in Mathematics and Computer Science from the University of Oxford. This event is hosted by the Hill-Lopes Scholars Program, with the support of student organization Sister Scripters and a grant from BGE. Dr. Imafidon will be available for a book signing after the event and copies of She’s in CTRL will be available for purchase by the UStore. Visit towson.edu/HillLopesEvents for more details.
