As Women in STEM, we Like to Inspire Girls in STEM. Celebrate Shark Week Remembering Eugenie Clark.

It is incredibly important for girls to see successful women in science careers. Eugenie Clark was one of those women. Known as the Shark Lady, she was a renowned ichthyologist, who discovered the first effective shark repellent in secretions from a flatfish called Moses sole that lives in the Red Sea. A pioneer in the use of scuba gear to conduct underwater scientific research and a veteran of more than 70 deep dives in submersibles, Clark continued diving into her nineties, even after being diagnosed with non-smoking-related lung cancer. You can read more about her in this National Geographic article, which will help inspire and keep girls interested in pursuing a career in science.
