15 Free Women’s History Month Coloring Pages

Today I am focussing on women in STEM roles with our 15 free Women’s History Month coloring pages.

These free holiday activities for kids are a great way to learn this March.

Women’s History Month is celebrated in March around the world. It is the perfect time to look back at all of the inspirational women from the science and STEM field.

Honestly, I am ashamed to say I had only heard of 1/15 of these amazing women before compiling these free worksheets.

These informational coloring pages will tell you what the women were most famous for and when they were born.

My favorite is Alexa Canady, she became the first African-American woman neurosurgeon in the United States in 1981.

But all of these women are so inspirational, and we should learn as much from them as possible.

Women in STEM

I am sharing with you 15 amazing women in science, who have done so much for the world.

Barbara McClintock (June 16, 1902 – September 2, 1992) received the Nobel Prize in 1983 for her work on mobile genetic elements.

Mae Jemison (October 17, 1956 – ) became the first black woman to travel into space. I also love this book about Mae Jemison about reaching your dreams.

Maria Mitchell (August 1, 1818 – June 28, 1889) was the first female astronomer in the US. She was also the first American to discover a comet. What Miss Mitchell Saw is an absolutely fantastic book that you will enjoy reading and the kids will love learning all about her.

Mary Anning (May 21, 1799 – March 9, 1847) was the first to discover a complete skeleton of a plesiosaurus. The Dinosaur Lady is a book that you should check out too.

Mary Somerville (December 26, 1780 – November 29, 1872) was considered the world’s first scientist.

Caroline Herschel (March 16, 1750 – January 9, 1848) built a 12 meter long reflector, the largest telescope of its day. Caroline’s Comets is a great picture book all about her.

  1. I have been sifting through this website for over an hour trying to print the 15 famous women. There are so many ads, teasers, and distractors, I still do not think I got them. Everything is so beautiful and helpful but I cannot seem to seal the deal. I did subscribe but I can’t keep doing this. No time. What’s the deal?
