From Lifeology: "Women in STEAM (science, tech, engineering, arts, math and medicine) are rocking it in the world today, doing amazing but often under-promoted work. We want more people to know about these women and their work, including girls who might dream of careers in STEAM fields! That is the goal our “living” Women in STEAM Lifeology card deck!"
