Her philanthropic endeavors most often relate to funding programs that encourage girl''''s interest in science and/or improve science education. By initiating more visable role models, and supporting more women teaching science, she hopes to make science contagious for all, including girls. Currently she and the National Academy are funding a series of biographies written for middle school students about women scientists. They are only including living scientists whose stories they hope will be inspiring.
