Happy Women's History Month! March is a time we at SparkFun like to celebrate the achievements of women in science and engineering. There's lots of women here (myself included), and we know just how tough navigating male-dominated STEM fields can be. We wanted to give some shout-outs to women working in science who share their life and work online.

I asked around SparkFun HQ to find out what women working in science right now you should follow. Check out everyone's most popular answers below!

    Thank you ladies for showcasing your strengths, determination, and intelligence to the engineering world and beyond! You inspire all young women considering an academic curriculum in the sciences and eventually a career in STEM. Knowing that there's plenty of "fun" in the world of "Sparks" fuels their excitement! I fully expect to see your nomination and induction into the National Women's Hall of Fame in the not-too-distant future!
