Actress and playwright Ellen Denny tells the story of Wonder, the new play she is developing about Harriet Brooks, Exeter’s own pioneering nuclear physicist and Denny’s Great-Great Aunt. How did a woman from Exeter become one of the world’s most prominent nuclear researchers, and why did she have to choose between family and career? Followed by audience Q&A.
This is also one of your last chances to see Iron-Willed: Women in STEM, a travelling exhibit from Ingenium in Ottawa that features the stories of women-Harriet Brooks included- who contributed to science, technology, engineering and math, and the obstacles they faced in doing so.
