Trailblazers in Science

Today is International Women’s Day. On this occasion Newcastle’s Discovery Museum opens an exhibition with the title Trailblazers – a celebration of remarkable women in science. The Guardian reports about the opening and some women, “who have made a significant contribution to the science, technology and mathematics (STEM) industries”.
