         THE PDK POSTER PROJECT - Pamela Davis Kivelson
           Using Visual Means To Challenge Stereotypes 

  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 to increase the number of 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.
