Nightlife: Unladylike

They broke rules, stereotypes, and glass ceilings. In honor of Women’s History Month, hear the inspiring stories of fearless Academy scientists from the past who challenged the status quo.


Buzzed Bios
African Hall
8 PM

  • Grab a cocktail and sip along as Kel Larkin, Institute for Biodiversity Science & Sustainability (IBSS) Program Manager, Marie Angel, Curatorial Assistant of Geology, and Chelsea Connor, IBSS Graduate Student, lead their version of drunk (Academy) history. Animations and stop motion art by Shayna Yasuhara will help bring a few famous Academy alumni to life during this scientifically silly look into the past.

Coastal Creations
6 - 10 PM

  • How did a “feminine” Victorian era craft become a window to our changing oceans? In the 1870s, women weren’t allowed to swim in the ocean, so they got creative: Pressed seaweed art emerged as a way to enjoy the coast, and now give us glimpses of the state of our oceans over a hundred years ago. Join the Museum of Craft and Design and try a modern rendition of this artform yourself by making seaweed print art with DIY block printed tote bags.

Unladylike Collections
6 - 10 PM

  • From insects to birds, Academy scientists will walk you through a collection of specimens previously deemed “unladylike” by societal standards

For adults 21+.
