Happy Women in Science Day!
It is officially called International Day of Women and Girls in Science and this year, the United Nation's theme for the holiday is "Investment in Women and Girls in Science for Inclusive Green Growth"
Over the past 15 years, the UN has been a leader in the movement to encourage women to pursue STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics).
Despite the initiative, less than 30% of today's researchers are female.
To share their pride and also act as inspiration to the next generation of female scientists, these women shared their experiences as women in STEM.
This woman works directly with the next generation as an educator.
This lady focuses her brain cells on other brain cells.
These women were sure to praise the female scientists that paved the way for them.
Be sure to congratulate the women in STEM around you!
