Female scientists

Who are these women?


Here are a few female scientists that you might not have heard of (but definitely should have). Marie Curie hasn't bee included, because as much as we all love her, she is the automatic "female scientist" that always springs to mind and we think it's time we branched out!

I'll give you a few days to see if you recognize them and can give some info about at least one of them . . .




Great, Ignacio!!
The first woman is Ada Lovelace, the second one is Rosalind Franklin and the last one Mary Anning.
Who were they? Why did they become famous?

Maybe the first on the top on the right is Frida Khalo? Frida Khalo, who was born in Mexico, was a famous painter. She felt in love with Leon Trotzki.

Ada Lovelace, whose Catherine was the poet Lord Byron was the first computer programmer.
Rosalind Franklin disco ed the DNA's structure, but his work was robbed.
