Saturday Evening Lecture Series 2015

Professor Dame Jocelyn Bell Burnell
'Tapping all our talents: Women in science, technology, engineering and mathematics'

Scotland is often seen as a scientific nation and one that highly values education. Are women major participants in these areas or are they male dominated? Is the scene changing? This talk looks at the position
of women in science, technology, engineering and mathematics in Scotland and makes some comparisons with other countries.

Jocelyn Bell Burnell inadvertently discovered pulsars as a radio astronomy graduate student, opening up a new branch of astrophysics - work recognised by the award of a Nobel Prize to her supervisor. She is
the first female president of the Royal Society of Edinburgh.
