Harvey Mudd mathematics professor Rachel Levy has started a blog to help her gather evidence contradicting the societal assumption—embodied in questions like "How would you explain that to your grandmother?"—that, as she puts it, "grannies (gender + maternity + age) might not easily pick up on technical/theoretical ideas."
"Grandma Got STEM," which features photos and biographical blurbs about "senior women" who have done work in the STEM fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, is looking for submissions:
Are you a senior woman working in a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) – related field? Know any geeky grannies? Email name+pic+story/remembrance to Rachel Levy: ggstem (at) hmc (dot) edu. Follow on Twitter: @mathcirque #ggstem
