The PDK Poster Project
The primary goal of this project is to encourage scientific literacy, and to promote the public's awareness and appreciation of science and technology by humanizing the image of research science and scientists. Its other major goal is mentoring women and girls who choose to pursue careers related to the physical sciences and mathematics, and to retain, at the high school and university levels, women who have already chosen such careers. The project represents an intersection between science and art, gender socialization, and education. It visualizes women in science and the role of personal choice in a life in scientific research.
