In Summer Session 2019, Dr. Alexandra Edwards's class "Writing Women Back into STEM History" undertook a research project with the goal of producing public-facing Wikipedia entries. Wikipedia's education intitiative has held up Dr. Edwards' students' work as a successful model of their mission to close the gender gap on Wikipedia. An article published on WikiEducation celebrates her class' contributions to the site and highlights the work of the women they researched and about whom they wrote new biographies.
