As two female high school chemistry teachers, we have a passion for science education and gender equality in scientific careers. We strongly feel that the female presence in STEM programs needs to have a greater representation. Our goal is to encourage and enable female high school seniors to pursue a career in science.
In the spirit of Rita Levi – Montalcini words, Italian neurologist and Nobel Prize winner in Physiology.
“I tell young people: Do not think of yourself, think of others. Think of the future that awaits you, think about what you can do and do not fear anything.
We are in the process of setting up an annual scholarship for a female high school senior planning to study a field of science in college. 1% of all purchases will go towards this scholarship. We hope in the future to explore other avenues to facilitate young women entering the field of science.
