Feministing Follow Friday: Women in STEM, Vol. II

Twitter, Feministing style
Last week we asked for recommendations for women in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) on twitter — and you had way, way too many ideas for just one #ff. We’re back for volume II today with five more amazing ladies who crunch (numbers).

  • Radium Yttrium (@DrRubidium): Analytical chemist. Left Coaster in the No Coast Zone. Sarcastic & silly, abides social morays. Near meaningless disclaimer: tweets = personal ≠ professional.
  • Sci Curious (@scicurious): Codename of sciwriter Bethany Brookshire. Education Blogger at Science News for Students, Blogger at Science News. Opinions are my own.
  • Adverbia (@LalSox): Science teacher, Geek Girl, Latina. @CurlyHairMafia
  • Dr. Isis (@drisis): Dr. Isis was a female scientist before being a female scientist became so cool. You can never have too many cardigans.
  • Jacquelyn Gill (@JacquelynGill): Assistant Professor at the University of Maine. Conservation paleoecologist using the natural experiments of the past to understand a warming world.
