Saturday, November 2, 2013
Tulane University’s GIST Program will provide fifth through seventh grade girls with the opportunity to meet and work with women role models in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields. Workshops developed and offered by faculty and student teams will encourage and empower girls to inquire, investigate, and discover in a positive environment. Our goal is to open the doors wide and welcome young students to careers in STEM fields by encouraging creative thinking, promoting self-esteem, and increasing awareness of the opportunities that await them.
Sunday, October 27th at noon:
Wikipedia is used by people around the world to easily access the information they need and is becoming more predominant as a source of information. However, Wikipedia depends on readers and volunteer editors to write, edit, and correct its entries. Theoretically, the vast network of contributors will make for an online encyclopedia that is accurate, objective, and self-correcting, but there is an imbalance in content that is available and well-cited through wikipedia. This is where we come in: by taking part in a Wikithon, we can make history for underrepresented groups like the LGBTQIA community more present online. By making the history of LGBTQIA and queer ideology accessible to a wide range of people via the internet, we will be contributing to the dissemination of the knowledge and history about the LGBTQIA movement.
Participants from the Tulane community are encouraged to join us as we learn to edit Wikipedia, increase visibility of underrepresented groups and contribute to topics important to our communities. No experience necessary!
Wikipedia Ambassador, Becky Carmichael, will share her experiences as a contributor and lead a workshop on how to get started editing Wikipedia.
