7-8 pm: STEM Trivia with Math Diva Kyne Santos- Kyne is a drag performer, author, mathematics communicator, and a contestant from Season 1 of Canada’s Drag Race. After Drag Race, Kyne became a popular figure on social media, attracting over 800,000 followers on TikTok with a series of math tutorials presented in drag. Kyne’s math tutorials are inspired both by a desire to present math in a fun and entertaining way, and by a desire to break down barriers, including countering common stereotypes that LGBTQ+ people cannot succeed in math and science.

Between each round of trivia, hear Museum scientists share their stories of breaking barriers, making waves in their fields, and how they got to where they are today.
