It is especially important in the areas of environmental protection, transportation, and medicine. That science should have no walls keeping people out is emphasized by a by school to college transition program in Minnesota for disabled high school girls that seeks to get the interested in careers in science and engineering. Best wishes, MichaelE. Bailey.

I grew up in Africa; studied Chemical Engineering in Europe and came to the U.S. I was very puzzled to find that girls in science and engineering had such a tough road here. Quite different from my experience growing up in Africa in which girls in science were celebrated, encouraged and generally championed. There weren’t many of us, but being interested in science and engineering wasn’t something we were shy about expressing.

I’m glad there is Women’s History Month to celebrate women’s achievments including those in science and engineering.

I am empowered by Administrator Jackson, and many other women at the Agency, who are tackling issues like climate change, environmental justice, and resource scarcity.

This is an excellent Greenversations post and monthly theme in honor of Women’s History Month–

My daughter, now 16 and in the 11th grade, is planning on majoring in Science when she goes to college. I will pass this information onto her Guidance Counselor if she would like to share with other girls looking at this field.

I too has always been interested in science, since the days of black and white television. Every Sunday here in New Orleans the T.V.
station showed a film about the U.F.O. which turned out to be weather balloons or a film about Superman, his planet and his abliity to fly because of the criptonite he drunk. As I have attended the February, 29, 2011 Gulf Coast Ecosystem Restoration Task Force Listening Session to get involve with the rebuilding of the Gulf Coast hoping that the knowledge that I receive from the Restoration Process could further my education here at Tulane University. I hope to use this valueable reserach to strength my Tulane University PH.D. goals and that of building Haiti.

It is encouraging to see the strides of women in the science and technology fields. I’ll be sharing this with my daughter.

I was told “No. Science is for boys.” I refused to believe them. I was branded a trouble maker for elbowing my way into science. I am not published or famous but with my two undergraduate science degrees and a masters in safety engineering I have quietly made inroads to the ‘Boys Only’ rule. A single mother of a daughter and a son I have tried to instill in them that your brain and determination will get you where you want to go, not your gender. The road is still harder for women to follow, more hills, poorer paving but much better than the cow path of the 1960’s. I love working in the hazardous & toxic waste arena. I like being in the People & Environment Protection Racket.
