I noticed these guys following me on Twitter- so I followed the links to their site which can be found here. Their mission is to:
Under the Microscope collects stories from women involved with science, technology, engineering, and math with the goal of publishing a survival guide for young women in science. Under the Microscope also publishes news, tips, interviews and profiles.
Because women are underrepresented in science, technology, engineeringand math, the goals of the Women Writing Science project are:
- To increase for young women and the general public the visibility of women working in scientific fields and engineering.
- To raise awareness about how women enter scientific careers inside and outside traditional pathways.
- To provide young women with role models, images and accounts of women working in STEM fields.
- To provide young women with widespread access to essential STEM concepts in especially interesting and socially-relevant ways.
- To help parents and teachers use their influential positions and wisdom to encourage young women to pursue STEM fields.
Go on over there and have a look around if you have a minute!
cool site! thanks for the link. I”m thinking I should start twittering too. I just don’t have the time lately for full out posts. How do you find it?
