The half-hour documentary, Bold Visions: Women in Science & Technology, gives us a glimpse into the lives of women who are dispelling the myths commonly associated with professionals who work in the fields of science and technology: a research scientist searching for genetic causes of diseases, an astronaut who applies her engineering expertise in space, and a technologist who is as agile leading a team of colleagues as she is playing soccer with her sons. Their work is exciting, collaborative, and makes a difference to the quality of our lives. This message is particularly important if America is going to keep its innovative edge by harvesting homegrown talent.
Featured are: Anne Carpenter, (above right), a 30-year-old Ph.D. who leads a team at the Broad Institute at MIT and Harvard in cutting edge genome research; Joan Higginbotham, (above center), a trained electrical engineer who maneuvers a robotic arm in space; and Duy-Loan Le, a technologist responsible for patenting 22 pieces of technology with 8 more pending (above left).
Also appearing in Bold Visions is Academy Award-winning actress Marcia Gay Harden (Pollock), and CSI: NY star Melina Kanakaredes, who speak of the important impact teachers can have early on. They want their daughters to be open to all career options, including those in math and science. In addition, the documentary features Hispanic high school girls from a program in southern Texas who, together with other students, have built a wind turbine to generate electricity for lights at a community center.
Bold Visions: Women in Technology & Science is a production of Creative Expansions, Inc.
