Celebrating #WomenInSTEM
Filed Under: Gerry Ward

I saw a tweet from Hayley Todesco, a previous Genome Alberta award winner, informing me that today is #WomenInSTEM day. Genome Alberta has recognized a significant number of young women scientists over the past ten years.

                                


In a blog from 2007, we recognized eventual Canada-Wide science fair winner Emily Cooley along with eight other young scientists. We provided a platform through the opportunity to submit guest blogs to our winners. Here are links to some of these:

We also provided a platform for these young women in STEM to explain their award winning projects on YouTube:

Chloe Devoy - Detection of Antibiotic Resistant E. coli in Retail Meat




Calista Wright and Madison Fleming - Bacteria in Ice




Taylor Ormann and Janine Nel - Testing Antimicrobial Properties within Animal Saliva




Prashi Shah - MOAP-1 as a Regulator of Inflammation in the Colon




Brielle Lillywhite - Fight the Bite - Will they Choose Dark or Light?




Rebecca Todesco - Proteolytic enzymes and Alternaria alternata




Kelcie Miller-Anderson - Trehalose: A Novel Stem cell Cryoprotectant




Genome Alberta is again sponsoring science fair awards in 2016. You can expect to see more significant young #WomenInSTEM on our blog pages.
