Honoring Trailblazers: Celebrating Women in STEM for Women's History Month

In March, we celebrate the contributions of remarkable women throughout history. In the STEM fields, countless women have broken barriers and shaped our scientific and technological understanding.

From Marie Curie's groundbreaking work in radioactivity to Grace Hopper's pioneering contributions to computer programming, women have played pivotal roles in advancing STEM fields.

We'd like to highlight Patricia Bath, a visionary in ophthalmology who invented the Laserphaco Probe, a device that revolutionized cataract treatment. Bath became the first African American female doctor to receive a patent for a medical purpose.

Another notable is Rosalind Franklin, an English chemist whose work was instrumental in understanding the molecular structures of DNA. Franklin's X-ray diffraction images of DNA led to the discovery of the DNA double helix.

We also celebrate the contributions of Dr. Gladys West, an African American mathematician known for her work in developing the mathematical modeling of the shape of the Earth, which led to the creation of the Global Positioning System (GPS).

These women inspire us at Nyla Nova STEMversity®, where we are committed to fostering the next generation of women in STEM.
