National Chemistry Week: Interviews with Women Chemists for Kids

From October 19-25th the American Chemical Society celebrates National Chemistry Week. This year's theme is "Having a Ball With Chemistry", and the official site links to chemistry-related activities and games for kids.

As part of the ACS's outreach to kids, they have a series of interviews with chemists done by "Meg A. Mole, Future Chemist" (a stuffed safety glasses-wearing girl mole). The women interviewed:

I'm not sure why the chemists were asked about their favorite food and color, but I suppose that kids would find details like that interesting. The interviews are also available in Spanish.
