Science Divas delves into the work, spirit and accomplishments of today’s women scientists, engineers and technology workers.

We will travel down to Antarctica, up the Ivory Towers of MIT and Harvard, and into sweltering volcanoes—whatever it takes to find women who are engaged in challenging and dynamic field work. We will capture the grit, realities and passionate lives of these divas who are pushing the intellectual envelope in today’s scientific world. 

Science Divas will challenge the myth of science as a boys’ club and shatter the image of the neutered, nerdy, female scientist slaving over a Bunsen burner.

After a brief and lively history of women who’ve made key contributions to a particular discipline (such as chemist Marie Curie or computer scientist Grace Murray Hopper), in each program Science Divas looks at contemporary women who are shaping their field of discipline, and explore the questions, boundaries, and principles that inspire them. Viewers will come away with a grasp of some of the most fascinating questions and issues in modern science—and the women who are tackling them.
