UPDATE: Carnegie Science Center has responded; see end of post.You know what kids love? Kids love science! Science is exciting, and it builds critical thinking skills, and it's actually more than just a little bit fun if you have an engaging teacher and cool things to do! And if you're a girl in Pittsburgh, you can actually get your
So you&#039;re saying Mitt is a catcher?
I also became an engineer, perhaps the blow was softened because both of my brothers did too. I found girl-stuff ridiculous from the get-go - I wanted Army men and footballs, not dolls. Not surprisingly, I also turned out to be a lesbian, though engineering made me a rich one. I am involved in STEM advocacy, and I always tell the girls - do something that is interesting plus earns you some money, so that you need not rely on anyone else.
The College Republican National Committee needs to hire the Carnegie Science Center&#039;s PR staff, stat: <a href="https://www.youtube.com/wat..." target="_blank">" rel="nofollow noopener" title="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZOppsQJtL2M">https://www.youtube.com/wat...
Yeah, me too, except not in a professional capacity nor as a member of the military, just as a citizen doing legal hobby stuff. (BIG legal hobby stuff now.)
That&#039;s for the &quot;lipstick science&quot; program.

Yeah, they could teach some hard-core science here -- but why do I suspect they didn&#039;t?
Learning all about organic chemical surfactants, anionic sulfates, alkyl ether phosphates, alkyl carboxylates. And then there are all the cationic compounds, such as distearyl dimethyl ammonium chloride and cetylpyridinium chloride. Not to mention nonionic stuff such as polyoxyethylene glycol alkyl ethers. You know, all that &quot;girly&quot; stuff that boys find so B-O-R-I-N-G because it doesn&#039;t involve crashing things into each other.
Some people just haven&#039;t quite caught up with <a href="http:\/\/webmuseum.mit.edu\/browser.php\?m=people&amp\;kv=12360&amp\;i=8398" target="_blank">this whole new &quot;women in science&quot; thing</a>. Give &#039;em more time, I guess.
Back in the olden days.... Seriously. When I was a (1960's) Girl Scout (all the way to Junior) scouts was about camping, fire safety, outdoor life, animals, and just about anything you could ask for. By the time my daughter enrolled (1980's) it had become the touchy-feely interpersonal relationships Scouts. I don't know why they changed, but they sure took a left turn there.
Let's put on makeup so the boys will like us!
Emily Litella could prepare quite an editorial!
And take off their shoes, too . . .
Ah, I see. Did you read my &quot;Marie&quot; as &quot;Madam&quot;? I didn&#039;t mean to reduce her to eye candy; I wanted to make a radiation joke.
I get all giddy when it comes to processes involving flammable solvents and organic peroxides. That&#039;s cool chemistry.
&quot;which reeks of the Pink Aisle in the toy store&quot;
Me and the man both wanted daughters, and we ended up with 2 sons. After years of passing by the Pink Aisle, I came to be very glad that it worked out that way.
...in Texas they teach their Girl Scouts the science of making a sandwich
