That’s Engineering!” Through hands-on activities, girls will learn how…

The inaugural edition of Scientiae, the new women in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics blog carnival, has been posted at Rants of a Feminist Engineer. Skookumchick has assembled an impressive array of posts dealing with joys as well as frustrations — go check it out! Also, the 55th Skeptics’ Circle is up at The Second…
