Project for my Social Psych class last semester. This poster series was created to 1) challenge these internalized stereotypes by bringing them to the viewer’s attention and 2) expand the range of role models by including a diverse group of women. Each poster follows the same basic pattern: a woman who has demonstrated her competency in a particular area refutes the stereotype that appears above her in the form of “Girls can’t …”. While the posters target girls ranging from children to young adults, I expect the message would also cause people outside that demographic to question their own beliefs about women and power. I designed each aspect of the posters with several principles of social psychology in mind:
Imagine that you are an H2O molecule. As a liquid, you vibrate and flow around with other water molecules. When temperatures get low, you vibrate less and begin connect with your neighbors to form ice.
BUT THEN ALL OF A SUDDEN NaCl GETS IN YOUR WAY!
With salt all up in your space, it becomes more difficult to bond your fellow H2O’s. That’s what’s happening when you melt ice with salt.
Most people will just say that salt lowers the freezing point of water. That is true, but it’s not the whole story.
When temperatures get low, H2O molecules get close to one another. They get so close that the water becomes ice. It’s sort of romantic. But can water molecules enjoy a romantic date if salt gets in the way?
Explainer TV presents this funny story about the interaction between Salt and Ice.
Check it out and guess who the cool sounding narrator is ;)
Happy Valentine’s Day and don’t let NaCl ruin your game!
Here’s a video that I made two years ago. It’s a love song that I wrote about nano-technology.
Nano-Technology opens up many possibilities in medicine, computers, and food. It also leads to some funny jokes. Like proposing to your loved one with a nano wedding ring—which is a real thing by the way!
