“Presenting students with diverse STEM role models is a key factor when helping them develop their own STEM identities. So why do we always push the "science guys?"”. Back in December 2018, 8th graders from West Prep Academy joined the #RockEDU team for a routine LAB Experience. After revealing their dearth of exposure to female scientists, @jeannegarb called on the Twitter community to share successful, brilliant and accomplished female scientists that could serve as role models for young women. The response was overwhelming and humbling.

Today, at RockEDU we had the pleasure of hearing from Dr. Strickland about the complexities of Alzheimer’s disease & Dementia. The talk was both dynamic & engaging. Many students stuck around to ask questions & everyone left better educated about these diseases. @RockefellerUniv

What began as a request for examples of successful, inspirational and accomplished female scientists, quickly gained momentum & went VIRAL! Female scientists from all over the world sent in photos of the unique and critical work they (& their colleagues!) did within #STEM! (2/3)
