- Her Lab in Your Life: Women in Chemistry, Chemical Heritage Foundation. This Web site is a companion resource to Her Lab in Your Life: Women in Chemistry, the new traveling exhibition from CHF. Taking design cues from youth culture and familiar surroundings such as diners and parks, the exhibition frames the stories of women chemists in a series of 12 colorful thematic stations. Created especially for high school and college students, but designed to engage general audiences as well, the exhibition showcases women who have helped create our modern world and their historic contributions to science and technology, and encourages young women to explore careers in chemistry.
