Web Site of the Week: I Was Wondering

This interactive website begins with a young woman named Lia talking about her favorite female scientists. It’s highly engaging and designed to get young women excited about entering scientific professions. On the homepage, visitors can read through answers to questions like “How do bones tell a story?” and “What’s inside an atom?” The site also includes a  wonderful Time Travel Timeline, as well as a 10 Cool Scientists area including profiles of scientists like Heidi Hammel,  Adriana Ocampo, Marta Tienda, and Amy Vedder. Overall, this is a website that does a tremendous job reaching out to curious future scientists in a way that’s both inviting and fun.  [KMG]
