Science evangelist Ainissa G. Ramirez paid a visit to Wilmington this month to convey her passion for the discipline and to inspire young girls, (and parents!) to become excited about the field of science. Calling her topic “Science is Our Future,” Dr. Ramirez was the second speaker in this season’s SmartTalk Connected Conversations lineup. Ramirez, who worked for several years as a researcher at Bell Labs and later as an Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering & Materials Science at Yale University, authored the book “Save Out Science: How to Inspire a New Generation of Scientists.” Ramirez also had the timely fortune of having written “Newton’s Football: The Science Behind America’s Game” and was a popular news interview specialist during the New England Patriot’s football deflate-gate. Several students from the Serviam Girls Academy and EastSide Charter School attended SmartTalk at the Grand Opera House to hear Ramirez speak, and the students were delighted to meet with her afterwards.

There are three more speakers in this year’s SmartTalk series, one each month from March through May.
