Alien and Other Women In Science

As is the case with most other woman of a certain age, I love Sigourney Weaver
(aka Ripley from the Alien movies) but who knew that she is a “serious science junkie?” I know because I've started reading and listening to FairerScience friend Glen Busby's new radio series Powerful Signals: Women in Science

The series includes ten free downloadable programs on projects to increase the numbers of girls and young women participating in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education and careers and three audio diaries which follow the day to day lives of young women in STEM. Teachers and others concerned about increasing girls' interest in science and engineering may want to check it out.
