Bridging Binaries: LGBTQ+ Tours Whipple Museum

How can labels and categories affect how we practice science or imagine the future?
From the ancient tracking of the stars and Sci-Fi futures, to women scientists and famous computer pioneers explore the spectrum of identities that exist across time, place and culture at the Whipple History of Science Museum.
