BONUS: Dale DeBakcsy, from Mad Art Lab, is teaching a class this summer in San Francisco about historical women in science. Check it out!
A woman who financed an expedition to the jungles of South America to study insects–in the seventeenth century. A chemist who invented the science of food and air. The animal behavioralist who figured out just what rooster wattles are for. For the last half-year, Dale DeBakcsy has been telling stories and drawing comics about great women in science at MadArtLab, and this summer, he’ll be teaching a class about them at The Learning Studios of Burlingame, going deeper into their stories, struggles, and triumphs. It’s science! It’s history! It’s scienstory! If you’re in the San Francisco Bay Area, and are interested in attending, or know a kiddo who could use a few more female scientist portraits on the wall to keep them inspired and encouraged, send Dale a note at countdolby [at] gmail [dot] com for more information!
