Spotlight on Women in Science explores representation of women in STEM in popular culture.

Stories from and about women who work and succeed in STEM inspire girls to imagine their future leadership potential in these fields. On Sunday, July 8 at the Ontario Science Centrediscover the power of cultural representations of women scientists when real-life STEM role models take centre stage to share their personal stories — from the fictional women who inspired them to pursue science to their compelling career paths to the importance of challenging cultural ideas of who and what a scientist is and is not.
