A new poster collection aims to bring more of these women's stories to light - and inspire today's Mighty Girls with the knowledge that she can be whatever she aspires to be! The free downloadable posters, created by Nevertheless, feature eight trailblazing women who have made an impact in STEM fields. Each poster is also uniquely designed by a different female artist from around the world. Nevertheless, a podcast which celbrates woment transforming teaching and learning through technology, hopes that you will download the posters and print them out for your school, home, or workplace. Below, you'll find links to dowload each poster, as well as a desciption of the scientist featured and recommended reading for both kids and adults to help you explore her story in more depth.
