Women In Science


Meet the Women of Science


To celebrate all the incredible women in science who are trailblazing, helping recruit even more women in science, and becoming role models for girls just beginning their own journeys, we’ve designated January as Raising Nerd’s Women in Science Month.

Because when girls are able to not only imagine but also literally see others like themselves in a STEM career and are encouraged, we know they are more likely to pursue and stick with STEM subjects in school. So it’s Raising Nerd’s goal to inspire, relate, and encourage girls and women of all ages and backgrounds to pursue their passions by showcasing a variety of badass women in science.

February 11th is International Women & Girls in Science Day, so please join us in honoring these amazing women by sharing their stories and reminding every girl you know that with the desire, access, and a little persistence, they can do anything!
