Women in Science

Found a nice website to compliment a Women in Science unit that we do with 4th graders. Iwaswondering.org is from the National Academy of Sciences and is designed to spark girls’ interest in Science. The site includes information about cool scientists, a women scientist timeline and some fun games. I also noticed that there is a series of 10 books called the Women’s Adventures in Science Series that are linked to the scientists on the website.

We have been using a CD called Telling Our Stories: Women in Science which hasn’t been updated since 1997. They are currently looking for funding to put the project online at a site called Content Clips. This program links in perfectly with our program so I am crossing my fingers that they will get funding to transfer the content.
