March is Women’s History Month! Join us as we learn about women who have made important contributions throughout history to the fields of science, math and art. Botanist Anna Atkins was the first person to publish a book illustrated with photographs! Her book included beautiful cyanotypes (aka sun prints) of seaweed and algae. We’ll honor Atkin’s work by making sun prints and exploring different materials from nature.
