ABOUT

This site hopes to show that science is for everyone and was developed at Edinburgh Napier University, in partnership with Dr Pam Cameron, Director of Novo Science, and Catherine Booth, retired Science Curator at the National Library of Scotland. Some of the accompanying music was sourced, and written, by Electric Voice Theatre


Please keep coming back, over the coming months, to see this site growing with fusions of art and science. We've have launched with a focus on Scottish Female Scientists. Details of how to help us fill the site with many more Superwomen of Science from the UK will be released shortly.

The Superwomen of Science website was built by 3rd year School of Computing student Zoe Wall and launched at Edinburgh Napier University on June 20th 2017. This followed a project with three of the University’s scientists, each working with a composer to create music from their science. You will find the results on the Minerva Scientific project, which is a clone of this project.
