Women in Research

Abstract

From the Greek Mathematician Hypatia to Chemistry Nobel Prize winner Dr. Ada Yonath, women have made valuable contributions to Science for thousands of years. However, today some girls are held back by the gender stereotype that women are not good at science. To work to break the stereotype, we interviewed three women in research: Meagan Lyszczyk from Chemistry, Maddy Wang from Computing Science, and Yvonne Wong from Psychology. While they each come from different scientific disciplines, they are all splendid examples of women in research. We hope that these womens’ stories and advice can inspire and encourage more students to become involved in research, especially those young women who want to but are afraid to.
