Women in STEM and Science - Smithsonian Museum
Updated: Mar 7, 2022
From the Smithsonian an internationally acclaimed museum:
The Smithsonian's collections represent US shared history, art from across the globe, and the immense diversity of the natural and cultural world.
The scope of objects in Smithsonian collections is staggering—from ancient Chinese bronzes to the Star-Spangled Banner; from a 3.5 billion-year-old fossil to the Apollo lunar landing module; from the ruby slippers featured in The Wizard of Oz to presidential memorabilia. Scholars and scientific researchers at the Smithsonian—and around the world—use these vast collections in their research to expand human knowledge. Learn more about the range of our collections on their National Collections Dashboard.
In Washington, D.C., 120 life-size, 3D-printed statues of female trailblazers are scattered across the Smithsonian Gardens, making it the "largest collection of statues of women ever assembled," according to a release from the museum.
It is about time that the contribution of women in Science and STEM is recognised on such a big scale.
