The Smithsonian Institution marked the end of Women's History Month with an online edit-a-thon on Increasing the Representation of Women in STEM. The IF/THEN project, which saw more than TK orange 3D-printed statues of notable women in science displayed at Smithsonian sites in Washington, D.C., was used as inspiration for the worklist.
With more than 80 attendees, the online meetup was led by Kelly Doyle and Andrew Lih and tackled the improvement of Wikipedia articles, as well as introducing Wikidata tasks from interacting with knowledge graphs to using TABernacle to add the occupation, field of work, and employer information for the women scientists and academics depicted in the exhibit.
