This presentation highlights student work on the History of Women in Science Project at Bryn Mawr College.The History of Women in Science (HoWiS) Project uses a variety of 3D technologies to recreate historical spaces where women practiced science. The virtual spaces serve as navigation to interactive pedagogical content contextualizing the experiences of women learning, teaching, and using scientific knowledge. Gender prejudices still adversely affect women’s success in STEM fields. A nuanced, public-facing exploration of the longer history of women’s practices can denaturalize negative stereotypes and encourage women to pursue scientific knowledge by demonstrating their persistent, sophisticated involvement in science throughout modern history. Student inquiry, professional development, and the scaffolding of integrated use of disciplinary skills shaped this project. The team will discuss their efforts to research, model, and animate circa 1900 laboratory spaces.
