Last week, I experienced my first Ecology Project International course with an incredible group of middle school students from Deer Lodge, Montana. Deer Lodge is a typical rural Montana town—small, isolated, and consisting of a community who generally all know one another.

The students on our course were no exception—most of them worked and fundraised for a year to pay for the already funder-supported local EPI course.

What better time to celebrate great women in science than the present! This is the third installment of our series - read the first and second - and we're highlighting women in history who not only overcame impressive obstacles to be the first of their kinds but whose perseverance and work changed the status quo, creating wide-scale movements that improved the lives of countless people. The more we talk about these women and their accomplishments the more they become role models for all young, future scientists, but importantly, for young girls, 47% of whom don't know a woman in a STEM field. Through this series, we hope to show all aspiring young girls that you, too, can do great good in the world through science. That without these women, the world would be a poorer place. And that with more women in science, there is... Read More

For the next few months, we're celebrating great women in science! This is the second installment of our series - see the first here - and we're highlighting women in history who overcame impressive obstacles to be the first in her field. Why? To show all aspiring young girls that you, too, can do great good in the world through science. That without these women, the world would be a poorer place. And that with more women in science, there is more opportunity for creativity, invention, and progress.  It's part of our larger #STEM4Good campaign. We hope you'll share our campaign and help us engage more girls in science this year. Barbara McClintock Barbara was born on June 16, 1902, in Hartford, Connecticut. Barbra's father was a physician, so it was no surprise she had an interest in science. She earned... Read More
