It's the sterilising effect of copper that works the cleansing magic. The copper underwear is made by merging copper with polyamide to produce an oil that's turned into wire. The wire is then woven inside your tightie whities so that the copper stays in contact with your skin so it can kill fungus and resist odour. So fresh and so clean! Of course, even if you do own copper boxers (or panties), please still wash them. It's not an excuse not to. [Guanabee via Geekologie]

It's not news that women are underrepresented in STEM related studies and professions. Only one in four IT graduates and fewer than one in 10 engineering graduates are women. Women occupy fewer than one in five senior researcher positions in Australian universities and research institutes, and are less than half the overall STEM workforce. To address this, $3.9 million in funding has just been secured by 24 organisations to rollout projects that will encourage girls and women to study and pursue careers in science, technology, engineering and maths.
