Today is International Day of Women and Girls in Science, a celebration of the integral role women play in science and technology fields. There has been a push in recent years to empower girls and women to find an interest in science, as there has been a decline in women embarking on STEM careers. Organizations like The Scientista Foundation are dedicated to such a cause.
It was an exciting day as SpaceX launched four NASA astronauts into space for a mission on the International Space Station tonight!

STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) is being pushed in school districts to introduce children to the many interesting areas and potential careers in science ... Beta Beta Beta is an organization that recognizes those students who excel in the field.
We’ve previously discussed honor societies dedicated to students excelling in the medical fields who are wrapping up their studies and heading straight to the front lines. Today, we’re talking about an honor society for students who are just as important but may be seen more behind-the-scenes: Sigma Xi: The Scientific Research Honor Society.
