We are super excited for the launch of the See it Be it STEM it 2020 calendar.
The calendar features young female STEM role models.
Each month tells the story of a different woman.
We love this resource because it’s such a great way to get these role models in front of young girls that can relate and feel included!
It’s a way to make STEM professions feel welcoming to a diverse group.
So, in honour of the calendar launch, we are sharing some of our favorite engineering role models…
- Her Excellence, the Right Honorable Julie Payette – before becoming Canada’s Governor General, Julie was an astronaut, engineer, scientific broadcaster and corporate director.
- Rosie Revere, Engineer – we know…not a living person. But, seeing a book featuring a character like Rosie might be just the inspiration that a little girl needs!
- Shuri – When Letitia Wright played Shuri in Black Panther, she brought something to our screens that we hadn’t seen before — a hip engineering mastermind who just so happens to be a princess of an indomitable kingdom!
Who are some of your favorite engineering role models?
