Sculptures of E. coli and a Trypanasome were created by the talented ArtFe, whilst The “Women in Science Rock’ was carved by Martin Wilson from Hatch Burn Carve and is a 13 kg chunk of Cornish slate. Both featured in the Scottish Superwomen of Science show and will later feature in an exhibition (watch this space).
Keen to redress the of historical and contemporary female scientists, we have bitten the bullet and created a new website www.superwomenofscience.co.uk
The website was designed and built by undergraduate student Zoe Wall in collaboration with Prof Emma Hart and Oli Mival, at Edinburgh Napier University. The schools of Computing and Applied Science funded the initial design and build and we will be continuing this important work throughout 2018. It already features the life and work of some overlooked female scientists (researched by Catherine Booth at the National Library of Scotland) and uniquely pairs each scientist with a female composer; some music being specifically composed to reflect the outstanding scientific achievements. This work has been generously supported by the Institute of Physics in Scotland and the Society for Applied Microbiology. Please keep checking back, over the coming months, as we continue to populate the site.
