How did science educational television shape the popular perception of scientists in the 20th century? Did television actually make science 'fun'? When does 'science fiction' converge with 'science education'?
These are all questions that intrigue Ingrid, a fifth year student in the History of Science department. Currently, she’s writing a dissertation on the history of science educational television in the United States. She also follows how television serves as a conduit of scientific dissemination.
She graduated summa cum laude from Oregon State University (2012, B.A.), where she studied history of science in the 20th century. Previously, Ingrid interned at Oregon Public Broadcasting and TERRA Magazine. She also worked as an assistant archivist in Oregon State’s Special Collections and Archives Research Center.
