Danielle Lee @ Urban Science Adventures has started a new blog carnival: Diversity in Science.
Blogs of every genre are invited to write a special feature post about a person who is a pioneer and/or innovator in any of the amazing fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM).February being Black History Month, the first carnival will be about African-American Innovators. The deadline is today, so if you want to be included, you'll have to dash something off. If you already have a blog post to submit, you can either follow the Blog Carnival Submission Link or leave a link in the comments to this thread.
Tell us all about him/her?
How has this person impacted field of STEM and/or inspired you?
Or why is his/her story interesting?
I won't have time to post anything new in time to be included in the carnival, but you might be interested in some of my earlier posts featuring African-American and African women scientists and engineers:
