In the US, women are 48% of the workforce but only 27% of the STEM careers. This family-friendly program explores a different science loving lady each session through story, art, and more!

Today, we're meeting Wangari Maathai, the first African woman to win the Nobel Peace Prize. Join us for an exploration of her work with trees, conservation, and doing what we can – no matter how small.
