This week, we are learning about women who loved and studied animals; some to learn more about them, and some who were inspired to create art featuring them. We know a lot more about chimpanzees, gorillas, sharks, reptiles, and more because of the curiosity of women scientists. In many cases, they learned and shared things we had never known before about these animals! Women artists created beautiful pieces to express their respect for and relationships with animals.
When everyone and everything tried to tell them "No" or "You Can't," these fearless women persisted. Armed with their knowledge, strength, and willpower, they pushed beyond the barriers. February is African American History Month and this week we look at BOLD WOMEN, past and present, who saw a challenge and rose above it to create progress for others.
Look around you; everything from our cars to our phones to the lights in our house to the food we eat, all came from someone's imagination. Sometime, somewhere, someone had an idea that started with the question, "I wonder?" February is African American History Month and this week we let our curiosity run wild as we take a look at all the inventors, scientists, innovators, and more who've made contributions to the world around us!
