Telluride Science: Next Town Talk 6/22 – “Science is Human”!

Telluride Science: Next Town Talk 6/22 – “Science is Human”!

Telluride Science welcomes their esteemed scientists back to Telluride. The doors of the Telluride Transfer Warehouse open on Tuesday, June 22, 6:30 p.m., for the second community program, “Science Is Human Because Humans Do Science: the impact of diversity and inclusion in science and how values affect innovation.”

Award-winning, veteran journalists, Judy Muller and George Lewis, will guide a conversation with Rigoberto Hernandez, Gompf Family Professor in the Department of Chemistry at the Johns Hopkins University and Director of the Open Chemistry Collaborative in Diversity Equity (OXIDE); Amber Krummel, Associate Professor in the Department of Chemistry at Colorado State University; and Stephen Bradforth, Divisional Dean for Natural Sciences and Mathematics in the Dornsife College of Letters, Arts and Sciences at the University of Southern California. The three esteemed scientists will discuss the implications of bias in science.

Humanity is so intertwined with science, that it is impossible to disconnect science from scientists’ values. The conversation will address how diversity and inclusion promotes advancements in science and technology. They will find context in a range of examples involving the promise and danger of new scientific principles and applications, such as engineered nanoparticles, autonomous computing materials, and emerging molecular tools to advance energy production and storage.

The Telluride Science Town Talk series was started in 1991 by Telluride Science Research Center co-founders, Stephen R. Berry and Peter Salamon. The intent was to engage the community with some of the extraordinary science that occurs at the workshops. The talks are free and geared towards the lay people in the community.

This summer, the talks will all take place outside at the Telluride Transfer Warehouse, and rather than the traditional one-scientist presentations, the programs will feature engaging conversations with opportunities for the community to interact with the scientists.
