Professor Andrea Brand will be discussing stem cells in the brain in her talk - Food for thought: awakening neural stem cells in the brain.⁣⠀⠀ ⁣⠀ Stem cells in the brain can generate new neurons throughout an animal’s life in response to stimuli such as exercise, nutrition and injury. We aim to understand the signals that instruct stem cells to produce new neurons at will. The ability to reactivate neural stem cells from a dormant state raises the prospect of future therapies for brain repair after damage or neurodegenerative disease.⁣⠀ .⁣⠀ .⁣⠀ .⁣⠀ .⁣⠀ .⁣⠀ #CSF2019#cambridge#science#festival#cambridgesciencefestival#cambridgeuniversity#universityofcambridge#cbgtown#dayout#eveningout#talk#scientists#lab#laboratory#openday#engagement#outreach#publicengagement#scicomm#free#refreshments#food#drinks#learn#biology#GurdonInstitute#scienceopenday#BrandLab#womenandgirlsinscience

"What is imagination?...Imagination is the Discovery Faculty... It is that which
"What is imagination?...Imagination is the Discovery Faculty... It is that which penetrates into the unseen worlds around us, the worlds of science." (Ada Lovelace, 1841) I'm doing creativity training all this week, and a huge part of creativity is imagination, which reminded me of the above quote from Ada Lovelace, great grandmother of computing. It's featured in ZEROES AND ONES, and again in this article, in the Professional Journal of the WA School Library Association. We need creative kids, so don't confuse science with boring or putting things into boxes. Science is all about discovery, it's all about imagining new ways of doing things. When 12-year-old Ada set out to discover how to fly, she was already on the path to inventing new ways to work with computers, those marvellous imaginary machines that hadn't yet been invented. Go science! Go imagination! Go Ada!

It’s INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S DAY 2019 The campaign theme is this year is #BalanceforBetter! The campaign states that “A balanced world is a better world. How can you help forge a more gender-balanced world? Celebrate women's achievement. Raise awareness against bias. Take action for equality.” . Women have been stepping up and standing out for ages. Highlighting their accomplishments can ignite and inspire the next generation of women leaders! . Teaching girls about those who have achieved in STEM before them is especially important for success in STEM pathways. Here are a few ways you can encourage the girls in your life: . 1️⃣ Read them fiction and nonfiction stories about women in STEM. Girls won’t be what they can’t see. We have listed some great books here (link in profile) bit.ly/Vivifystembooks . 2️⃣ Connect them with real women in STEM. Find someone who works in an interesting STEM field that she can shadow one day or even grab some ice cream together and share how they got where they are. This makes STEM careers more attainable and sets up a network for support along the way. . 3️⃣ Tell your girls that they matter. No one is perfect, and in fact it is best not to be. Learning from our mistakes is what propelled us forward. So, in the words of Ms. Frizzle, “Take chances, make mistakes, and get messy!” . How do you inspire and equip girls in STEM? . . . . #internationalwomensday#stem#womeninstem#girlsinstem#stemeducation#stemgirls#science#girlpower#womenandgirlsinscience#scientist#teachersofinstagram#stemmom#homeschoolmom#teachermom#internationalwomensday2019#girlmom

#TechFact / #DidYouKnow? Valentina Tereshkova was the first woman in space. On 16 June 1963, she piloted the Vostok-6 into orbit for a three-day flight. In honor of her birthday today (6 March) and of March as Women’s History Month, IEEE salutes her pioneering achievement and the technologies behind it. Tereshkova’s flight was codenamed Chaika (Seagull), a nickname that many in the Russian space program continued to know her by.

@nasa renames facility in honor of ‘Hidden Figure’ Katherine Johnson NASA has redesignated its Independent Verification and Validation (IV&V) Facility in Fairmont, West Virginia, as the Katherine Johnson Independent Verification and Validation Facility, in honor of the West Virginia native and NASA “hidden figure.” “I am thrilled we are honoring Katherine Johnson in this way as she is a true American icon who overcame incredible obstacles and inspired so many,” said NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine. “It’s a fitting tribute to name the facility that carries on her legacy of mission-critical computations in her honor.” US President Donald Trump signed into law in December an act of Congress calling for the redesignation. The facility’s program contributes to the safety and success of NASA’s highest-profile missions by assuring that mission software performs correctly. IV&V now is in the process of planning a rededication ceremony. “It’s an honor the NASA IV&V Program’s primary facility now carries Katherine Johnson’s name,” said NASA IV&V Program Director Gregory Blaney. “It’s a way for us to recognize Katherine’s career and contributions not just during Black History Month, but every day, every year.” .
