On November 10, to celebrate the 131st birthday of Elisa Leonida Zamfirescu – the first female engineer in the history of world science, Google changed Doodle to honor her.
Elisa Leonida Zamfirescu was born in the era of male disdain, not allowed to create learning opportunities. At the age of 22, she was admitted to her favorite engineering major at the Royal Berlin Institute of Technology.
Elisa Leonida Zamfirescu is considered a symbol of the rise of women. Throughout her life, she has studied several sources of substances such as coal, chromite, bauxite and copper.
On November 9, to celebrate the month of Native American heritage, Google also shared a video at the logo placement on the homepage to honor Amanda Crowe, famous for its wood sculptures. In Google’s November 9 doodle, Crowe was animated as an animation while her works were real images.
Crowe is a Cherokee aborigine, born in 1928 in the Qualla Boundary region in North Carolina (USA). She started sculpting with the help of her uncle when she was 4 years old and her talent soon became known.
In 1946, Crowe received a scholarship at the Art Institute of Chicago, where she satisfied her passion for writing on plastic, stone and metal. But wood is the material she finds most interesting. After obtaining a master’s degree, Crowe moved to Mexico to study and returned to his hometown in Qualla Boundary to teach art at Cherokee High School.
During big holidays or special days, Google regularly changes the logo on its search page with drawings, videos or games – called Doodle – to celebrate. Doodle was first used by Google in 1999 to celebrate the Burning Man festival.
