March is Women’s History Month!
Many of the technologies we use today are because of women in tech. Carol Shaw made retro gaming awesome (before it was retro), Apple computers are so intuitive because of Susan Kare, from the very first computer programmer Ada Lovelace to Joan Ball who basically invented online dating, we’ve come a long way baby! Check out this article on 15 of the most important women in tech that you will want know about.
Another great resource for educators to peek at this month is Science Stories, a database featuring over 600 stories about women in science. The site allows you to browse women’s stories, see timelines, educational institutions, research articles, awards, and more. The Mae C. Jemison or Tu Youyou are great places to begin especially if you printed off the poster resource we highlighted last month!
The 2019 Women’s History Month theme is “Visionary Women: Champions of Peace & Nonviolence.” You can find a list of this year’s honorees here.
