Out of School and into Nature
Naturalist and artist Anna Comstock (1854-1930), defied social conven-tions and pursued the study of science. She loved exploring out-doors, examining wildlife and learn-ing nature’s secrets – from watching the teamwork of marching ants to following the constellations in the sky. At Cornell University she pushed back against the notion that implied science was a man’s pursuit, pioneering a movement to encour-age schools to conduct science and nature classes for children outdoors. In following her passion, this remarkable woman blazed a trail for female scientists today.
