Explore Women Scientists and Explorers

Do you ever wonder how things work? Why we get sick and how medicine makes us better? What's at the bottom of the ocean or on the moon? If you wonder about these or similar things, you are like the many women scientists who find answers to such questions.

By exploring questions, these women uncover much about the world and the things in it. Their findings help to make people healthier, the world cleaner and safer, and life more enjoyable.

Girls Explore® introduces you to some of these women explorers, such as Rachel Carson, who uncovered the dangers in pesticides; Sally Ride, the first woman in space; and Jane Goodall, the leading authority on chimpanzees.

To learn more about women who explore everything from the depths of the earth to outer space, click on the Additional Information links on the right column.
