At the Calvert Marine Museum in Solomons, Homeschool Week (see Jillian Amodio’s story this week) comes during Women’s History Month. Families are invited to visit the museum and pick up the kit on Southern Maryland women. Museum goers will celebrate the 100th anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution through a hands-on exploration of the Museum’s HERStory exhibit. This exciting new program shines a light on some of the pioneering women from Maryland’s history. Participants will identify fossils like paleontologist Dr. Susan Kidwell, tie knots like boat captain Edie Taylor, and get up close with sting rays like Dr. Eugenie Clark.

You can also celebrate Women’s History Month by learning about some of the incredible contributions women have made in the field of science, and hear what is currently being done to close the gender gap within the field.
The Calvert Nature Society hosts a gathering with naturalist Kim Curren to discuss the matter; membership purchase required to attend.
