Sally Ride Science

Do it for your daughters!

First read this Smithsonian article about our nation's first woman astronaut and her fight to involve girls in science -- a battle that pitches her against influential people such as the president of Harvard, who "hypothesizes that girls can't cut it in science because they lack the inherent ability"[!].

Then explore her site, Sally Ride Science with its homepage message: Empowering girls to explore the world of science—from astrobiology to zoology and everything in between!

In a related update, is one of several Googlers who volunteered at the Expanding Your Horizons in Science and Mathematics conference in March 2006. See her entry about the annual workshops held to encourage middle-school girls to keep studying science and mathematics.
