I think this is a wonderful book to help inspire the next generation of women to enter the STEM field but I wish there were more things in it. I was really disappointed in the references page. I also feel like even though the second half of the book was very diverse, the first half seemed to be mostly about white American women which was a little frustrating because I know there were other discoveries outside of the US.

Each page of this book is saturated in color & details the achievements of one women in the industry of science. Book includes a timeline of how far women have come in the field of science & a great glossary of terms.
This would be a great resource to use in the classroom for various activities

We love this book, in fact the boy checked it out from the library so many times we bought it for him for Christmas. When I saw the puzzle I couldn‘t resist. 500 pieces and the illustrations are fun and color coded. Good times!
I may have used Litsy to make an image for the social media accounts I started for Cientificas Presente 🤓🇵🇷🌺 Follow us on Instagram and/or Facebook! I‘ll be sharing photos and videos from the semester up until we arrive on the island on June 15, then it‘ll be live, on the ground content from camp 😊
Unlike last haircut day, I only bought ONE of the three books I wanted from the selection at the nearby consignment and quirky gift shop I love. The others were also science books written in engaging and fun ways, but this one really speaks to the core of the STE(A)M camp I‘m helping put on in Puerto Rico this summer. Maybe the class/program needs its own Litsy account to share relevant books with the girls, hmmmm... 🤔 🇵🇷
#LiteraryLuck Day 8: For #InternationalWomensDay, here is a collection of fierce fantastic female scientists. It is indeed fortuitous that there is a preponderance of biographies on notable females published over the past two years or so. We are now spoiled for choices and can really examine the titles for diversity, authenticity, and representation. My review: https://wp.me/pDlzr-jtl
I‘ve been really enjoying reading about all these amazing women in science. I just got to this page on the list of all the different laboratory tools many of these ladies used and I was shocked. I got my BS in environmental science which involved taking up to organic chemistry. I can say that I‘ve used every single one of these tools at some point in my educational career.

So I‘ve skimmed through this several times since buying it but this is the first time I‘m reading it page by page. These pages include a time dedicate to amazing achievements of women in history. Why is this book about women who changed the world but the timeline is only about moments in American women‘s history? 🤔

Merry Christmas everyone! I hope everyone had a truly wonderful day no matter how it was spent. It was our twins first Christmas and truly fun even though they won't remember it.
I was spoiled bookwise. I wish I had time to read all of these now!
I have not received my #Jolabokaflodswap yet so I figured I‘d improvise since I‘d still like to celebrate!
Thank you very much, Lauren. What a gorgeous gift! I had to pace myself already, might have devoured the book in one sitting. (which would not be that bad, but I'd like to stretch it a bit.)
This gem is a wonderful place to start for anyone interested in the history of women in science. The vibrant design is easy on the eyes and the information included is a fabulous introduction. I definitely recommend this one for all ages.
Today I am going to try to get to these two for my #NEWTsreadathon2018. Women in Science is for my E levels in Herbology and Fantastic Beasts will be for my A levels in History of Magic.
I have 32 books to get through this month, just for this readathon. I don't know if I can do it but I'm Slytherin enough to try.
Bright stylized art, snippets of facts, a memorable quote & a page of text are allotted to each of the 50 women featured. Some are well-known like Rachel Carson & Jane Goodall, many are Nobel recipients. All have faced gender-based discrimination, such as working without pay for 7 years (or 9 years) as a university professor &/or being denied research space & bathroom facilities. Inspiration for young & older readers interested in STEM.
“People are allergic to change. You have to get out and sell the idea.” —Grace Hopper, 1906-1992, Navy admiral and computer scientist.
I‘m not only learning about women in science, I‘m learning new vocabulary. Mary Agnes Chase 1869-1963) is considered to be the world‘s greatest agrostologist. That‘s an expert on the subject of grass.
In 1893, Florence Baskin was the first woman to get a PhD from John Hopkins University. She was forced to take her classes behind a screen so she wouldn‘t ‘distract‘ any of her male classmates.
Reading Envy Podcast 116: Make Margaret Atwood Fiction Again with @BestDogDad
Jeff Koeppen returns to the Reading Envy Pub, stamping the snow from his boots so we can chat books. We cover poetry for National Poetry Month, science in tribute to his first episode, North Korea, Scotland, dystopia, and a new modern classic.
Taking a break from reading to March for Science. #womeninSTEM. Also the tagged book is amazing! ⚗️🔭🔬
Annie Easley inspired me so much that I have penned a poem about her :)
This book is awesome! Huge thank you to the wonderful anonymous person who gifted it to me today😻
Thanks litsians for some great recommendations this year.
Women in science
Proves humanity can after all better AI (goodreads😀)
Can't wait until Piper is old enough to enjoy this gorgeous book she received from our friends 😁📚
Okay, I have to take a better pic of all my loot, but I wanted to show Tullulah who came over to claim her Valentine‘s toy 💕from @LadyChristy . She did a really cute pounce and then ran off with it. I‘m like a sloth in the morning without my coffee ☕️ so I didn‘t catch it on camera. More pics to follow, but I‘ll just say I love absolutely everything and thanks so much for thinking of my kitties 😻#Cupidgoespostal
What a great idea this book is, and it should be sitting on a table in every science classroom to shed light on the forgotten or under appreciated women who contributed so much to science.
I found a used copy of this and had to have it! I loved the Women in Sports book.
1. This is a work shelfie- the first half of my biography section
3. None of the above right now, but when I‘m not pregnant I go back and forth between wine and beer.
5. Refugee by Alan Gratz, Sputnik‘s Guide to Life on Earth by Frank Cottrell Boyce, about to start some Agatha Christie short stories
This is such a cool book!! I love the illustrations and design. Hats off to these women and many more who are truly fearless and inspirational! ❤️
#TBRtemptation post 2! A well-illustrated and beautiful book that discusses 50 notable women in the STEM fields--science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. From Jane Goodall to Katherine Johnson, the profiled women will show how trailblazing women have been in the various fields. #blameLitsy #blameMrBook 😎
OMG IT'S HERE!!!
Reading this little beauty for a break from longer books. Never too old to learn about women scientists, mathematicians, philosophers from all over the world. I love the illustrations. Every girl/tween/teen/young adult/adult can learn a thing or three. This has given me the desire to delve deeper into the lives of these inspirational women. #deweys24hourreadathon
Getting to fill in for an after school STEM program this afternoon. We're making marble roller coasters. It should be madness and good fun. I'll be bringing one of my favorite programming aids, just in case there is a chance to work it in. Can't wait until I have been in the job a little longer and can put more work into my women in STEM programs!
So far this is a fun an enlightening read! Great companion piece to #lumberjanes
Reading to my little sister
Exciting news this morning! We get the keys to our flat tomorrow & can move back home! We've been in a temporary flat for 3 months so am excited to move home & be reunited with my stuff (books!📚)
Also excited to read Women in Science as part of my #7in7readathon it's gorgeously illustrated.
#womensstudies #womeninscience #equalitymatters
My final reading pile for the #7in7readathon which kicked off at midnight August 14th.
Landscape magazine, Women in Science illustrated book, this is a children's book but it's gorgeous!, The Saint Zita Society by Ruth Rendell, The Weaver Fish, The Little Prince (b/c I love the movie but hadn't read the book) & Animalium 🐙 not pictured, We should All Be Femininsts essay on my kindle.
#BackToReading Here's a book about some #GirlsInScience.
#AndItsAugust #ItsHistory so what a lovely book to learn about it from.
#AugustGrrrl I can't even imaging being so clever as to #Think up or discover the things these ladies did.
I learned a ton from this book. So many female scientists that I knew absolutely nothing about. I really liked the set-up, with the artistic renderings of the scientist, a quote from or about them at the bottom of their portrait, and little interesting facts sprinkled around the text. So much great information in this.
