Encouraging females

Chemist Mamie Moy of the University of Houston is on a career-long mission to make science fun. And, her 56-year career at UH has now been recognized by the American Chemical Society through its Award for Encouraging Women into Careers in the Chemical Sciences. The award, sponsored by the Camille and Henry Dreyfus Foundation, includes a $10,000 grant. Moy plans to use the money to hold a mini-conference for girls in grades K12, as well as female university students.
