Just a few days ago, the BUST blog reported on the huge fail of a campaign that the European Commission launched in a somewhat laughable attempt to “overturn clichés” related to women and science.  Now a recent series on the Txchnologist blog reminds us that, though there definitely aren’t enough women in science at the moment, women have done amazing things to help move our world forward for centuries.

Not only does  Biophilia feature Tesla coil instruments, it is accompanied by an education program for middle ... Read More
