Science Needs Women: 
For Women in Science; the L’Oreal Foundation 

I’m sharing this video on any platform I can because when I first found it last week it had something like 1,400 views, but it’s the most beautifully produced and succinctly narrated video addressing some of the most complicated issues facing women in STE(A)M fields I’ve found yet. 

I’m sharing this for every time I’m called a “feminazi.”

…for every time I’m told that my concerns aren’t valid, our that our issues are imagined.

…for every time I hear “women just don’t like science,” or worse - “women just aren’t good at science.”

…for every time we’re told that we can have a family or a career, but not both - and for every time we feel like we have to decide between the two.

…for every time a study comes out saying as many as 64% of women endure sexual harassment during field work

…for the fact that women earn 41% of PhD’s in STEM fields, but make up only 28% of tenure-track faculty in those fields.

…and because we need more women mentors in these fields to stand up for issues that are not “women’s issues” - these are people issues that affect our collective society as a whole.

The women in this video are my heroes and they should be your heroes, too.

Science needs women.

Seconded! 

Important and inspiring.

Very motivational.

Thomas explains what he loves about science, the puzzle which is never truly solved. It’s not about finding the solution, but about the journey you take.

Today, Aug 19th we celebrate National Aviation Day.

This exhibit propeller demonstrates feedback. Weights attached to the propeller control the angle of the blades, which limits your top speed.

What a coincidence his top speed was 19!

If you were stranded on a island what would you build to survive or get back home? Well that’s what families are working on in #DesignLab.  (at New York Hall of Science)
