Science Buddies List 60 Women in STEM We Should All Know #WHM23 #WomensHistoryMonth #WomenInSTEM
Science Buddies shared a great list full of incredible women in STEM. The list features women from different time periods and fields. Although 60 may seem like plenty, there are so many more to learn about, so we hope you use this as a starting point!
There have always been women in science. Whether recognized at the time or not, women interested in science and engineering have made important discoveries, conducted game-changing research, and pursued careers in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). Uncovering and sharing these stories and encouraging girls to see themselves as future scientists is important, ongoing work for science educators.
There are, of course, far too many women in science history to put on a single list, but the more scientists you and your students know about, the better! This resource can be used during Women’s History Month and year-round to celebrate, recognize, and talk about inspiring women in science. We encourage educators to pair learning more about women in STEM with student reflection on personal interests and possible career paths, too.
