Remarkable Minds
Pendred E. (Penny) Noyce is a doctor, education advocate, writer and publisher.  Her most recent book is “Remarkable Minds: 16 More Pioneering Women in Science and Medicine (Magnificent Minds)” and can be found on Amazon here.  Penny joins Matters of The Mind with Dr. Peter Sacco and Todd Miller tonight at 8p ET to discuss these remarkable books about incredible women pioneers in science!
Penny grew up in California’s Silicon Valley when it was still mostly apricot orchards and fields of mustard. Along with her brother and sisters, she rode ponies, put on plays, and explored the rapidly changing countryside. She graduated with a degree in biochemistry from Harvard University and an M.D. from Stanford University. After her internship and residency in internal medicine in Minneapolis-St. Paul, she worked at the East Boston Community Health Center. During a year in London, she received a diploma in Tropical Medicine and Hygiene. Subsequently, she supervised medical residents at Newton-Wellesley Hospital, but she left the practice of medicine after the birth of her fifth child.
In 1991, Penny became a founding trustee of the Noyce Foundation, which supports K-12 mathematics and science education across the U.S. For nine years she also helped lead a statewide effort to improve mathematics, science, and technology education in Massachusetts. Currently she serves on the Massachusetts Board of Elementary and Secondary Education.
Penny is author or co-author of eight novels for children ages 9-12, including “Lost in Lexicon” and “The Ice Castle” from Scarletta Press and six books in the Galactic Academy of Science series from Tumblehome Learning. Her most recent book, this one nonfiction, is Magnificent Minds: Sixteen Pioneering Women in Science and Medicine.
As co-founder of Tumblehome Learning, which publishes science mystery and adventure stories for young people, Penny serves as Tumblehome’s editor and chair.
We have a lively chat about the stereotypes, expectations and cultural challenges facing both these historical women, and the young women of today!
