Support and Inspiration for Young Women Scientists

womenmicroscope is a new website aimed at supporting and inspiring young women who want to get into STEM related fields. Its mission statement is very similar to ours.  Under the microscope also seeks to become a social networking website for students, working scientists, teachers, counselors, and parents.

One of the main tabs in the website is the inspiring stories of women in STEM fields.  You can share your story with them to help inspire new generations into following your steps.  I read some of the stories and most of them praise one or more of their secondary grade teachers as being some of the first people that inspired them to pursue a STEM related career.  It also goes to show that effective teaching has the great reward of knowing that students are able to follow their dreams or continue developing skills that they learned in high school.

I hope you find this website useful for you, your students, and/or your children.
