“Science is not a boy’s game, it’s not a girl’s game.
It’s everyone’s game. It’s about where we are and
where we’re going.
Space travel benefits us here on Earth. And we
ain’t stopped yet. There’s more exploration to come.”
Nichelle Nichols, former NASA Ambassador and actress

“When I was young I was very interested in science
and technology, and my dad brought home the first
computer. I played pac man and I was hooked!
By learning to create technology, girls learn to
speak up.”
Regina Agyare, Founder of software company
Soronko Solutions

“Suppose you came across a woman lying on the street
with an elephant sitting on her chest. You notice she
is short of breath. Shortness of breath can be a symptom
of heart problems. In her case, the much more likely
cause is the elephant on her chest.
For a long time, society put obstacles in the way of
women who wanted to enter the sciences. That is the
elephant. Until the playing field has been leveled and
lingering stereotypes are gone, you can’t even ask
the question.”
Sally Ride
First American Woman in Space
Challenger Space Shuttle, 1983
