MARIA MITCHELL #WSW by Molly Hornbuckle, Marketing Communications Manager

No woman should say, "I am but a woman!" But a woman! What more can you ask to be? With only 19 days until totality hits Nashville for the first time since 1478, I wanted to take this chance to feature one of the original “eclipse chasers,” Maria Mitchell. Born in Massachusetts in 1818, Maria grew up in a large Quaker family and community where they valued education and insisted on giving girls the same quality of education that boys received, as one of the...

        When I first took the reins of Adventure Science Center's Instagram , I wanted to do more than just provide science learning to our followers. That’s not how we do science at Adventure Science Center--our mission is to open minds to its wonder. I wanted to share science that inspires.
