Pretty Brainy launches its celebration of Women’s History Month with this presentation of seven women scientists whose scientific contributions have been passed over and whose work merits our attention every month of the year.
Meena Balgopal is an Associate Professor of Science Education in Biology. She studies how students (K-12 and undergraduate) make meaning of natural and physical sciences through reading, writing and speaking experiences.
Heidi Olinger is the founder and chief executive of Pretty Brainy. From research and testing, she creates STEAM curricula to inspire and prepare girls and young women to innovate, problem-solve, and lead in the 21st century.
