S1166: STEMINST: The Great Women in Science! in Splash Fall 2023 (Nov. 18, 2023)
From the beginning of programming and computers to the unraveling of the structure of DNA, from the invention of the term "radioactivity" to the coining of the term "bioorthogonal chemistry," from the crucial theory in continuous symmetry to the revolutionary experiment proved the parity conservation violation, women have always been there. There are more obstacles for us to remember them but we want to not only remember them but also what they have been discovered specifically. In this course, we will dive deep into the theories, experiments, and concepts invented by the great women scientists.
