Before the acronym STEM even existed, Pauline Beery Mack, Texas Woman’s University professor in the 1950’s – 1970’s, pioneered in the quest for knowledge in science, technology and statistical research. Her advances in bone density studies provided NASA invaluable information for manned spaceflight, earning Mack a Silver Snoopy award presented by Astronaut Jim Lovell in 1970, a time when women scientists were rarely recognized among their male peers.
