SHE CHANGED STEM POSTERS

Hi Friends,  Half of the profits from the sale of "SHE CHANGED STEM" posters and digital files will be donated every week to a different non-profit organization promoting gender equality in STEM fields, The other half will allow us to print extra posters to donate to Schools and educational institutions.

This week we are donating to 

an organization that aims to increase the number of women of color in the digital space by empowering girls of color ages 7 to 17 to become innovators in STEM fields

Act for Gender equality!

The Free download of the week is the poster of Katsuko Saruhashi

 High-res File, 3600 x 2700 pixels, print up to 24" x 18"

Katsuko Saruhashi (March 22, 1920 – September 29, 2007) was a Japanese geochemist who created tools that let her take some of the first measurements of carbon dioxide (CO2) levels in seawater. She later showed evidence in seawater and the atmosphere of the dangers of radioactive fallout and how far it can travel. Along with this focus on safety, she also researched peaceful uses of nuclear power.
Among her other honors, she was the first woman elected to the Science Council of Japan, to earn a doctorate in chemistry from the prestigious University of Tokyo, and to win the Miyake Prize for Geochemistry.

 


"SHE CHANGED STEM" poster series

“One of the things that I really strongly believe in is that we need to have more girls interested in math, science, and engineering. We’ve got half the population that is way underrepresented in those fields and that means that we’ve got a whole bunch of talent…not being encouraged the way they need to.”

Former President Barack Obama, 2013

 "SHE CHANGED STEM" poster series honors women in the field of STEM that change the way we see the world and revolutionized science with their hard work and brilliant findings.

The series currently includes Katsuko Saruhashi, Daphne Koller, Katherine Johnson, Dorothy Vaughan, Mary Jackson, Rachel Carson, Marie Curie, Jane C. Wright, Barbara McClintock and Alice Hamilton but it will keep growing as we receive more suggestions from our patrons (thanks for your suggestions!)

You can order the printed posters below in 16 x 12 and 24 x 18 inches or download the High-res digital files to print it yourself (3600 x 2700 pixels)

Today, women hold only 27 percent of the jobs in computer science, and 14 percent in engineering. One reason is the lack of female role models in STEM fields to encourage more girls to study math and science.

Now more than ever is time to take action and honor women's legacy in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math.

Daphne Koller

Daphne Koller is a Professor in the Department of Computer Science at Stanford University and a MacArthur Fellowship recipient. Her research area is artificial intelligence. Koller co-developed PhysiScore, which uses data to pre dict health issues in premature babies. She earned her bachelor's degree at the age of 17, and a master's degree one year later.

Katherine Johnson, Dorothy Vaughan and Mary Jackson 

Katherine Johnson (1918) Dorothy Vaughan (1910-2008) and Mary Jackson (1921-2005) were black female mathematicians who worked at NASA during the  Space Race. The visionary trio crossed all gender and racial line and inspired generations.

Marie Curie 

Marie Skłodowska Curie, born Maria Salomea Skłodowska (1867 – 1934) was a Polish and naturalized-French physicist and chemist who conducted pioneering research on radioactivity.

She was the first woman to win a Nobel Prize, the first person and only woman to win twice, the only person to win a Nobel Prize in two different sciences, and was part of the Curie family legacy of five Nobel Prizes.

She was also the first woman to become a professor at the University of Paris, and in 1995 became the first woman to be entombed on her own merits in the Panthéon in Paris.

Jane Cooke Wright

Jane Cooke Wright (also known as "Jane Jones") (1919 – 2013) was a pioneering cancer researcher and surgeon noted for her contributions to chemotherapy. In particular, Wright is credited with developing the technique of using human tissue culture rather than laboratory mice to test the effects of potential drugs on cancer cells.

She also pioneered the use of the drug methotrexate to treat breast cancer and skin cancer.

Barbara McClintock

Barbara McClintock (1902-1992) was an American scientist and cytogeneticist who was awarded the 1983 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine. McClintock received her PhD in botany from Cornell University in 1927. There she started her career as the leader in the development of maize cytogenetics, the focus of her research for the rest of her life.

From the late 1920s, McClintock studied chromosomes and how they change during reproduction in maize. She developed the technique for visualizing maize chromosomes and used microscopic analysis to demonstrate many fundamental genetic ideas. She produced the first genetic map for maize, linking regions of the chromosome to physical traits.

She was recognized among the best in the field, awarded prestigious fellowships, and elected a member of the National Academy of Sciences in 1944.

Alice Hamilton

Alice Hamilton ( 1869 –  1970) was an American physician, research scientist, and author who is best known as a leading expert in the field of occupational health and a pioneer in the field of industrial toxicology. She was also the first woman appointed to the faculty of Harvard University.

Her scientific research focused on the study of occupational illnesses and the dangerous effects of industrial metals and chemical compounds. In addition to her scientific work, Hamilton was a social-welfare reformer, humanitarian, peace activist, and a resident-volunteer at Hull House in Chicago. She was the recipient of numerous honors and awards, most notably the Lasker Award for her public-service contributions.

Rachel Carson

Rachel Louise Carson (1907-1964) was an American marine biologist, author, and conservationist whose book Silent Spring and other writings are credited with advancing the global environmental movement.

Carson began her career as an aquatic biologist in the U.S. Bureau of Fisheries, and became a full-time nature writer in the 1950s. Her widely praised 1951 bestseller The Sea Around Us won her a U.S. National Book Award, recognition as a gifted writer, and financial security. Her next book, The Edge of the Sea, and the reissued version of her first book, Under the Sea Wind, were also bestsellers. This sea trilogy explores the whole of ocean life from the shores to the depths.
