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. [Liquid Air Demonstration at The Franklin Institute | American | 1947 | The Franklin Institute, Philadelphia]
.
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.
.
As part of this effort to draw attention to the work of women in science, we invite you to discuss some of your favorite women scientists using the hashtag #5WomenScientists. This project is inspired by the National Museum of @womeninthearts#5WomenArtists project. • #Science #ScienceHistory #WomenInScience

Title: Andrew McKinlay
Artist: John Kay (1742 - 1828)
Date: c1812
Technique: Etching.

Portrait of Andrew McKinlay tried for administering unlawful oaths. He was arrested 23rd February 1817 and charged with sedition. The charge was not proven.

John Kay was a Scottish caricaturist and engraver. Kay etched and sold his caricature portraits individually from 1784 until the 1820's. These individually issued etchings were collected over many years by Hugh Paton and issued as, A series of original portraits and caricature etchings by the late John Kay.

Who was Marie Curie? Each month we tell the life story of a SENSATIONAL SCIENTIST, making science relevant for primary age kids #STEMed #sciencehistory #famousfemalescientists #womeninscience

120 years ago this week, while dissecting a mosquito stomach, Sir Ronald Ross discovered proof of the malaria parasite's transmission to humans. #ThrowbackThursday 📷: CDC

Alison Jolly was born in 1937 and received her PhD from Yale. She performed zoology research and ended up moving to Madagascar to study lemur biology. She was the first to discover lemurs love in a female dominated society and published many written works, from scientific research papers to children’s books in English, French, and Malagasy. She is important in research AND in protecting wildlife in Madagascar. She helped create the Berenty Wildlife Reserve, which was actually quite close to where I studied abroad! The reserve educates conservation importance to local people, which is so very important. Madagascar wildlife is quickly disappearing, and Alison Jolly wanted to make sure some of the ecosystem remained and that we can continue to learn as much as we can about these amazing primates! That’s why we say #ThankYouSTEMGem #STEMFem #STEMGem #dianfossey #science #thankswomeninstem #thanksstemfem #femaleandproud #sciencehistory #chemistry #biology #physics #STEM #allieandcocoscienceshow #thankfulforwomeninSTEM #primatology #madagascar #zoology #malagasy #berenty #wildlifereserve #alisonjolly

Ever wonder why hissing cockroaches, hiss? The unusual sound is produced by forcing air through their spiracles (external respiratory openings like gills). It's a form of communication and cockroaches are the only animals known to do this! #AmazonAdventureWeek

Happy birthday Guion S. Bluford, Jr.! He is a @nasa astronaut, a US Air Force pilot, and he became the first African-American to fly into space in 1983, as a member of the crew of the Orbiter Challenger. #inspiration

Taking a breather from my pre-holiday madness cleaning to show you this little gem of a book I always forget we have. It was given to my husband by his grandfather who was a nuclear physicist! Super fun to read alongside the little history or particle discovery that I've been reading.

In the 1940’s, Nobel prize winning Japanese physicist Hideki Yukawa wrote down the mathematics which describes how a scalar field (Higgs field in our case) can give mass to particles.

Happy birthday to Edwin Hubble, who provided the first evidence of the expansion of the universe. The image above was taken by the Hubble Space Telescope, named after this legendary astronomer. It shows the Horsehead Nebula in the constellation Orion. 🌌

Rita Levi-Montalcini was born in Turin, Italy in 1910 to. Jewish painter and an engineer. After finishing college, her father strongly discouraged her daughters from furthering Education because that may get in the way of marriage and a family, but Rita said no way and went to medical school, later working as an assistant at the school. When Mussolini signed a very discriminatory law forbidding Jewish people from work, she created a secret lab in her bedroom studying chicken embryo development. After WWII, her work allowed her the opportunity to work in St. Louis, continuing her studies on nerve fiber development, isolating nerve growth factors from cancerous cells in brain tissue. This information became very important in describing mental health as it is associated with the brain as well as mental disorders, such as Alzheimer’s Disease. Her work led to a Nobel Prize and a long life (she lived to be 103!) of helping us better understand the brain. Because of her lasting effect on how we perceive the brain, we say #ThankYouSTEMGem to #ritalevimontalcini #STEMFem #STEMGem #dianfossey #science #thankswomeninstem #thanksstemfem #femaleandproud #sciencehistory #chemistry #biology #physics #STEM #thankfulforwomeninstem #alzheimers #research #mentalhealth #nervegrowthfactor #jewish #wwii #nobelprize #nobelprizewinner #badassfemales
