“Super Cool Scientists”

It’s not just lab coats and microscopes!

‘Science is cool’  was the message behind an event hosted by the Sari A. Rosenbaum Fund for Women and Girls. The guest speaker and local author, Sara MacSorley, discussed why she chose to author a book about “Super Cool Scientists” and how she teamed up with local illustrator Yvonne Page.  “I googled ‘women in science coloring book’ and nothing came up” Sara said, “have you ever googled something and nothing came up, that’s how I knew I needed to do this.”  “Super Cool Scientists” includes biographies of 22 female scientists working today.  Sara hopes the book inspires young women to pursue careers in S.T.E.M. (science, technology, engineering and math).

Take a look at some of the pictures from last night’s event at the Community Health Center Rooftop Garden.
