Some Interesting Lady Engineers to Follow on Twitter #FF

engineeringladyWe’ve been trying to follow as many ladies in STEM fields as we can, creating Twitter lists by field. One of the most amazing experiences of the past couple of weeks, was watching live tweets of ladies who were involved with the launch of NASA’s Maven project to Mars. Following women in STEM careers is a great way to get an idea of what types of things they work on day-to-day, as well as a way to build connections and learn. You can follow us @LadyParagons, and see all our Twitter lists.
