International Day of Women and Girls in Science
What was your inspiration?
The story is told that Lise Meitner saw the iridescence caused by oil on water and it inspired her to a career in science.
On February 11, 2021 the International Day of Women and Girls in Science:
“Share an image that tells the story of your journey to be a scientist”
The image could be something that initiated your journey, represents a significant step along the way, or speaks to where you are now.
Given the focus of the day, we are, of course, looking for stories from women. But, fear not men, you can share what inspired a daughter, a niece, a mother, an aunt or even a grandmother! And although we’re medical physicists we’re celebrating the whole of science.
Send your pictures with a brief caption to firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll feature them all on the COMP twitter feed and a selection in an upcoming edition of Interactions.
- COMP Women’s Committee
* If you don’t know who Lise Meitner is, then we can help with that!
