You are invited to join APS and Wiki Education to discover new ways to help break barriers for underrepresented groups in the sciences. With approximately 500 million views a month, Wikipedia is one of the most popular and best-known websites in the world. However, you may be surprised to learn that fewer than 18 percent of the biographies on the site are about women. APS encourages you to take an active role in raising that percentage. Give a voice to the voiceless and impact your field by applying to take our Wiki Scientist Course, Biographies of Women and Minority Physicists. Act quickly—the application closes on January 10. Apply for the course on the Wiki Scientist page.
