#STEM领域的女性# 伊迪丝·克拉克,美国第一位专业女性电气工程师(美国美中報導)

#妇女历史月##STEM领域的女性#伊迪丝·克拉克(Edith Clarke)是20世纪初一位富于开拓精神的电气工程师。她当时的工作是“计算师“(computer),即在现代计算机和计算器发明之前从事复杂数学计算的人。克拉克努力寻找一份真正作为女性工程师的工作,而不是当时女性可以从事的”寻常“工作,这使得她在1922年成为美国第一位专业的女性电气工程师。她为女性在STEM和工程领域铺平了道路,在得州大学任教时更是成为了全美第一位电气工程女教授,并在2015年入选国家发明家名人堂。

#Women in STEM# Edith Clarke,  the first professionally employed female electrical engineer in the United States

#Women in STEM# Edith Clarke was a pioneering electrical engineer at the turn of the 20th century. She worked as a “computer,” someone who performed difficult mathematical calculations before modern-day computers and calculators were invented. Clarke struggled to find work as a female engineer instead of the ‘usual’ jobs allowed for women of her time, but became the first professionally employed female electrical engineer in the United States in 1922. She paved the way for women in STEM and engineering and was inducted into the National Inventors Hall of Fame in 2015.
