Seattle is under a shelter in place order and we currently have no future events scheduled. We are exploring the possibility of presenting some planned topics as a webinar – if you are interested in helping out, please get in touch!

However many other organizations have provided amazing online resources to keep up with the science of the current pandemic, (Eventbrite, NAM), learn how to maintain your own well-being, or watch live streams of zoo animals all over the world. If you have other interesting online options to share, we encourage you to share them on our facebook page.

Congratulations to the AWIS 2020 Award winners, for the amazing contributions they have made to STEM in the Pacific Northwest!
