At EPI, we love science teachers, and we think you don’t get nearly enough credit for the amazing work you do. Think about it. You’re responsible for teaching students how to think critically through science education. You connect them to an entire field of knowledge, to new studies, and emerging research. And you inspire them to become doctors, engineers, conservation and marine biologists, or maybe even, you guessed it, science teachers! It’s like the circle of life… So for you, science teachers, EPI has put together a list of the most incredible professional development opportunities with nonprofit organizations around the country, and beyond – summer institutes, trainings, workshops, conferences, and more. Want to build your Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) curriculum?

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.

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.
