It starts with a simple question: What's so cool about science? Ellie's answer: 'Everything.' That's because when 6-year-old Ellie grows up, she wants to be a scientist, just like our very own Virus Hunter Mary Rodgers. In celebration of International Day of Women and Girls in Science, we helped Ellie’s dream come true for a day. Sporting her very own lab coat and safety glasses, Ellie got to spend the day in the lab with Mary — and no question was off-limits. Ellie believes she can be a scientist when she grows-up. Because to a 6-year-old girl, science doesn't have a gender. Neither does brilliance.
