Interview a Female Scientist

These pieces will include an interview of a prominent or significant women in science. The interview piece must be edited and approved by the person being interviewed and the editorial board. Interview questions are provided below. For consistency, please ask at least 4 out of 6 of these questions. You may add in other questions, but please be sure they are relevant. You must first submit who you are interviewing and the interview questions you are going to ask to Inquiry@EmergingFemaleScientists.com for approval.
  1. Explain the educational path that lead you to your current career.
  2. Who inspired you to pursue STEM? What motivates you to continue in STEM?
  3. What would you say to a group of middle and high school girls who want to pursue STEM career fields?
  4. Why do you think it is important to have women in STEM careers?
  5. Share a turning point,defining moment, or memorable accomplishment in your work as a scientist or innovator.
  6. Are there areas of challenge or controversy for women in your area/field of STEM?

Here is an example email to send to a famous woman in STEM:
My name is _________. I am a Junior at the ____________ high school in Best Town, Best State. I hope to publish in a new online journal called Emerging Female Scientists (EFS), which was created to inspire, recognize, train, and equip female middle school and high school STEM students to pursue and share their scientific ideas and research. In fact, EFS is the first and only scientific journal inspired by and created just for 7-12 grade women in STEM. Every submission is received and reviewed by an all-female editorial board, which is guided by a Scientific Advisory Board of nationally-recognized scientists, doctors, researchers, and educators.

One of the categories of publication is to interview a famous female STEM scientist or innovator. Would you be willing to give me a short interview? The article will be sent to you before it is published and reviewed by a professional editor.

Here are the some questions that will be asked:
