STEM Jobs #DoWhatYouLove. How outstanding women in STEM fields overcame obstacles – Lesson Plan. “Well-behaved women seldom make history” – Lesson Plan. By Katie Gould and Elizabeth Jones Introduction Since Harvard professor Laurel Thatcher Ulrich coined the phrase, “Well-behaved women seldom make history” in the 1970s, those words have become a slogan for girls hoping to break the mold.

“Well-behaved women seldom make history” – Lesson Plan

This lesson plan challenges students to identify negative stereotypes about women and men, introduces students to Anne Bonny (a woman who breaks traditional gender stereotypes) and gives them the opportunity to use creative writing skills to create their own profile on one of four other “rule-breaking” women in history.

It should be noted that there are many myths and legends about the unconventional women chosen for this exercise, so students should be mindful of which resources they choose to use during their research and how they present their information. Subjects Social studies, English, women’s studies, women’s history month, gender studies Estimated Time Thirty minutes in-class time and an hour for homework Grade Level High school Materials Stereotypes.

Illustration: Boeing Up There: The SkyHook airship, a joint project of Boeing and the Canadian company SkyHook International, is a rotary-airship hybrid that will haul oil-drilling equipment in northern Canada.

Airships for the 21st Century

Although nonrigid airships aren't weighed down by an internal framework, they still have to support the gases, fabric, and other components, as well as any payload. Obviously, the greater the airship's weight, the larger the volume of lifting gas needed and the bigger the envelope size. As the size increases, so does the vehicle's surface area and consequently the amount of aerodynamic drag during flight. These and other factors dictate the amount of power required to propel the airship through the sky. Although people pilot most of today's airships, the newer designs are increasingly pilot optional, meaning that a crew can fly them during tests or initial deployments and then quickly switch them to remote operation. More ambitious is the U.S. VSTE - Virginia Society for Technology in Education.
