If someone asked you to name female scientists from history, how many names come to mind? Unfortunately, it's a rare person, child or adult, who can name more than two or three female scientists — and, even in those instances, the same few names are usually mentioned time and again.
For centuries, women have made important contributions to the sciences, but in many cases, it took far too long for their discoveries to be recognized — if they were acknowledged at all. In our blog post, "Those Who Dared to Discover," we've shared the stories of sixteen female scientists who have who have blazed new trails in their disciplines. From determining the size of the universe to unlocking the secrets of the genetic code, these pioneering women have forever changed the way we see our world!
And, to help you dig deeper into their stories, we've also included resources such as books and posters focused on the featured scientists at the end of each profile for readers both young and old.
