STEM GLAM GALLERY: Louis Pasteur

This week’s honor goes to Louis Pasteur, the French biologist and chemist best known for his invention of pasteurization. Pasteur is a towering figure in the history of science for his groundbreaking discoveries, and his contributions have helped save or improve countless lives beyond his generation. Here is a list of his major scientific contributions and the back stories behind them. 1. He discovered the existence of molecular asymmetry. For a number of years, scientists had been puzzled about organic chemicals such as tartaric acid. A large number of natural organic substances had been found to rotate the plane of polarized light to the left or right, while the apparently identical substa

STEM GLAM GALLERY: George Stephenson

This week, we are going back in time to rediscover a talented engineer, George Stephenson, the ‘Father of Railways.’ While Stephenson did not invent the steam locomotive, he was the first person to build a fully-functioning steam locomotive, and made significant improvements to the designs of the steam locomotive throughout his career. He also built the first railway that was solely machine-powered, invented a safety lamp for minors, and created the standard rail gauge that is still used worldwide today. Here are three interesting facts to see why he’s admirable. 1. He had no formal education. Stephenson was born as the second child of a working class family, to Robert and Mabel. His parents

STEM GLAM GALLERY: Wirginia Maixner

This week, our star is Wirginia Maixner, an Australian neurosurgeon and the director of neurosurgery at the Royal Children's Hospital. She is known for having performed the first auditory brainstem implant on a child in Australia in 2007, and later having separated the conjoined twins, Trishna and Krishna in 2009. Maixner’s surgical career began as a result of her love for sewing and the admiration of her aunt, Australia’s first female flying doctor, as a child. Despite a warning from a superior during her student years that surgery "takes beautiful young women and turns them into ugly old women", her parents’ unwavering support and her own doggedness got her through her bachelor’s education

STEM Glam Gallery: Marjorie Lee Browne

MARJORIE LEE BROWNE, the third African American in US to earn a Ph.D in Mathematics. “If I had to live my life again, I wouldn’t do anything else. I love mathematics.” *Illustration by Matteo Farinella* Black women has been consistently underrepresented in the number of advanced degrees awarded in STEM fields: During the 39 years between 1973 and 2012, just 66 black women achieved Ph.Ds in physics while the count reached up to 22,172 for white men. In computer science, black female Ph.D.s doubled from eight to 16 between 2002 and 2012, the same period of time that saw white men jump from 198 to 436. Unfortunately this pattern still holds true today in 2017. Women and African-Americans (and o
