Women in Science ON THE AIR!

Public radio network WAMC has a program devoted to women in science, technology, engineering and mathematics aptly called Women in Science ON THE AIR! They've put the show online, so you don't even need to be in the network's listener area to hear the program. From their site description:

The Women In Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics ON THE AIR! website is an audio resource for young girls, young women, parents, middle and high school teachers, college professors, guidance counselors, researchers, organizational leaders, and anyone interested in learning more about the past, present and future role of women in science and technology education, fields and careers.
There are several different (but overlapping) program series they have available:
  • Sounds of Progress: "a series of radio stories that highlight the changing role of girls and women in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM)."
  • Powerful Signals: "a special radio series highlighting the role of women and girls in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM)."
  • Her-Story Then and Now: profiles women scientists and engineers, past and present
  • The Tech Club: "Aspiring teenage scientists, Emily Lescak and Ivy Hughes join Mary Darcy, Producer and Host of 51% and talk with 54 women in science and technology about why and how each of these women chose her career, what she does each day and what she hopes to accomplish in her work."
And there are more shows in their archives. It's definitely worth a listen.
