Join us for our annual luncheon meeting. Our keynote speaker will be UNR Professor Wendy Calvin, who is a planetary scientist specializing in optical and infrared spectroscopy of minerals and ices, at UNR’s Desert Research Institute. She will present an interesting talk on how, as a woman, she chose her field, which is mostly a male dominated area of science. She will talk about opportunities available for young women entering her field and related science areas. She will discuss her current projects, one of which deals with the planet Mars!
