March: Celebrating Women Who Made History in Science

Happy Women's History Month!

The Diversity in Science Carnival will continue to celebrate the people of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) and share their stories of triumph, success and perseverance. Last month's inaugural carnival celebrating Black History Month was a success. Science Bloggers and Education Bloggers really came through. Plus there was participation from literary and business blogs. We really hope blogs from every genre feel welcome to share their stories of Women Achievers in STEM- Past and Present! This is a great time to learn and create a new online community.

This month's carnival is hosted by the ever wonderful and examining, Zuska of Thus Spake Zuska. Get your post ready. Introduce us to an inspiring, innovating and exciting woman in an STEM field - your own field or perhaps an influential STEM teacher you encountered in school, on a field trip to the zoo or museum or a mentor. Submission deadline is Wednesday, March 25, 2009 at midnight. Zuska will pour over the fabulous entries we submit and publish the 2nd Edition of the Carnival the next day (or so).

Submit here.

Also, if you need a little prompting, this is the Year of Science and this month's Theme is Physics and Technology. Being such a Life Scientist I often don't share nearly enough physical science with my blog readers. This is a perfect chance for me to practice a little 'academic diversity' and learn something new and share it with you, my readers.
