Black Women in Science: The Ball Method

Drop-in 1:00pm – 2:30pm, Indoors

Join us for an exciting new program series that honors the contributions of Black women in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and math. In this program, explore the work of Alice Ball, a groundbreaking chemist who developed the “Ball Method” – one of the first treatments for Hansen’s Disease, or leprosy. Be inspired by her work as you try your hand at some basic laboratory techniques, such as pipetting, and conduct simple experiments to explore water solubility.

 

This program series was created in combination with Ellice Patterson, Biologist and Founder/Artistic and Executive Director of Abilities Dance Boston, and a Discovery Museum Science & Engineering Communication Fellow.
