Diversity in Science – Women’s History Month Edition
The first Diversity in Science carnival, created and hosted by DNLee of Urban Science Adventures as a Black History Month Celebration, was a great success. Thanks to everyone who contributed!
Now it’s time for our second round, which will be hosted right here at Thus Spake Zuska. Naturally, since it is March, our focus this time around will be a Women’s History Month Celebration! The theme is “Women Achievers in STEM – Past and Present” and we are asking you to profile a woman in some field of science – your own or maybe one you wish you’d chosen! Tell us something about her life, her work, why you find her interesting.
Not sure where to begin? May I suggest perusing the Let’s All Have A Party post, with comment entries frequently added by Penny? There are scores of fabulous women listed there, and how nice it would be to have more than a short comment entry on any one of these women. Maybe you’d like to pick one and do a longer profile piece on your blog.
While we’re at it, I’ll just make note that today is the birthday of Olga Alexandrovna Ladyzhenskaya, mathematician – thanks, Miss Prism for creating the Zuskateer Parties Google Calendar!
Okay, let’s get busy writing those blog posts! Contributions should be submitted by midnight (Eastern Standard Time) on March 25. Leave a link here in the comments or send me an email at bobtownsuz AT yahoo DOT com. Check back for updates; there may be an additional submission method. If so I will let you know here. I look forward to hearing from everyone!
UPDATE: Entries can also be submitted through the blog carnival submission site, as Danielle notes in her comment below.
