A Passion For Discovery: Women in STEM
This feature-length documentary film presents a history of women in Science ~ from its hidden geniuses and pioneering foremothers to its modern explorers. It exposes the barriers women overcame in order to follow their aptitude and interests; it asks what women bring to STEM fields, and why there are few women scientists. By using archival material, reenactments, and on-camera interviews with scholars and working scientists, A Passion for Discovery offers historical and cultural perspectives and inspires young women to honor their abilities, to pursue their curiosity, and to help us meet the future and diverse demands of the STEM fields. Filming has begun with Dr. Meg Urry, Astro- physicist, and at Tech Trek, a Science and Math Camp for Girls.
