Thanks in large part to the "maker space" movement, traditional wood shop classes are becoming more high-tech. In the maker space at Rutgers University, students have access to a 3-D printer and a laser cutter, which have been put to use on such lofty projects as a replica of the “Game of Thrones” Iron Throne and a bust of Groot from “Guardians of the Galaxy."

Today marks the first annual International Day of Women and Girls in Science. Established by the United Nations General Assembly in 2015 and sponsored by multiple UN organizations, this day is an occasion to celebrate the contributions of women in all science fields, and to raise awareness of the fact that access to STEM education opportunities for women and girls is not only a civil rights issue, but essential for global economic development and sustainability.

This article profiles five remarkable #WomenInSTEM. There are many, many others. Who are some of your favorites?
