March Issue Highlights
March marks the celebration of Women’s History Month. In 1987 after being petitioned by the National Women’s History Project, Congress passed Pub. L. 100-9, which designated the month of March 1987 as “Women’s History Month." Since that time, American presidents have issued a series of annual proclamations designating the month of March as “Women’s History Month.” This year’s theme honors trailblazing women in labor and business.
To recognize Women’s History Month, SB&F’s March issue reprises our evolving list of books about Women in STEM. (84) We update this list every year and our list contains books for all ages. We endeavor to select titles that reflect a broad range of topics. Some of the books are traditional biographies while others are narrative nonfiction stories that highlight women scientists conducting their scientific research in settings ranging from the field to the lab.
This month also marked the opening of a free new art exhibit inspired by the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) at the Visitor Center at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland. Our article on page 105 describes the exhibit.
March is also Music in Our Schools Month, which is a celebration that engages music educators, students, and communities from around the country in promoting the benefits of high-quality music education programs in schools. We celebrate it with our Read-Around-A-Theme focused on the science of music. (105)
You’ll also find our monthly selection of book and media reviews and our listings of upcoming science television programming.
