STEM Careers

Women Heroes of Science & Technology

American Agri-Women is highlighting agricultural STEM careers and showcasing women in these fields in the “Women Heroes of Science & Technology” project, sponsored by Crop Science, a division of Bayer, and McCain Foods.

STEM stands for science, technology, engineering and mathematics. STEM is important to agriculture because science is everywhere and touches our lives daily. As technology increases, there will be more demand for people in STEM careers, especially in the field of agriculture.

Women scientists and technologists are finding innovative ways to help farmers and ranchers produce more food in a safe and sustainable way. They are also coming up with new food, fiber and fuel products and other new uses for agriculture products.

Learn about these real-life heroes in this bookmark series, free for you to download and use. Watch this space as we add more educational elements to the “Women Heroes of Science & Technology” project.

And, we would love to hear how you are using the bookmarks to help educate young people about agriculture.

Thank you to our sponsors Crop Science and McCain Foods for helping make this bookmark series possible.
