#5WomenArtists Meet #5WomenScientists

While the National Museum of Women in the Arts asked, "Can You Name #5WomenArtists?" other cultural organizations expanded the challenge to ask, "Can you name #5WomenScientists?" These hashtags show the underrepresentation of women in both fields. Check out a few posts from March 2017!

  2. Can you name #5WomenScientists? Throughout the month of March, Women’s History Month, The Franklin Institute will be highlighting the achievements of women scientists. For our final post in this series, we feature five women of The Franklin Institute. Swipe ➡️ to see all five.
.
Isobel Arthen, one of our science interpreters, works to serve as a bridge between the scientific community and the public, making the joy and wonder of science accessible to all. Her research interests include restoration ecology, wetland ecology and nutrient cycling.
.
Jayatri Das is The Franklin Institute’s Chief Bioscientist. She developed the science content behind our SportsZone and award-winning Your Brain exhibits. From evolution to nanotechnology, she is curious about how science affects our lives every day.
.
Raluca Ellis, The Franklin Institute’s Environmental Scientist, provides support for exhibits and programs that have an environmental science focus. Her biggest project right now is directing the Climate and Urban Systems Partnership (CUSP), a multi-city project focused on learning about climate change science and city-level responses to urban impacts of climate change.
.
Lucia Keim, shown here presenting The Institute’s popular Liquid Air Show, was our Head of Museum Demonstrations in the 1940s. Our Liquid Air Show, still presented most days at The Franklin Institute, was first presented in 1936.

.
Alix Leszczynski, one of our science interpreters, is found throughout our museum developing and implementing demonstrations and activities designed to help our visitors understand science concepts. With a keen interest in the natural world, Alix also volunteers with our neighbors at The Academy of Natural Sciences in their malacology department studying mollusks.
