Women You Should Know has teamed up with Courtney Church, the woman behind Periodically Inspired, our favorite nerd-chic apparel brand that’s inspired by the Periodic Table Of Elements, for this awesome Women’s History Month giveaway. It’s our way of celebrating Brainy Chicks… everyday women (past and present) who have used their brain power to outperform, innovate, discover, defy and soar.

They are present day history makers like Professor C. Bodin, who, in September 2013, joined the ranks of LEGO’s 35-year-old Minifigure Series as its very first female scientist. They are also the history making pioneers like 2X Nobel Prize winning physicist and chemist Marie Curie, who on June 25, 1903, announced her discovery of radium, a new radioactive element, which was critical to the development of x-rays in surgery, and the field of radiology.


So this is for all those Brainy Chicks out there. Here’s your chance to stylishly show off your intellect. The design is printed on an insanely soft sweatshirt made of 60% combed and ring-spun cotton and 40% polyester fleece. It’s also Made In The USA, and screenprinted in little Rhode Island.

Like all of Courtney’s clever designs, this sweatshirt spells out its signature phrase by using the one and two-letter abbreviations of specific Periodic Table elements’ names. Since inquiring minds always want to know, here’s what makes you a BRaInY CHICK:

B for Boron
Ra for Radium
In for Indium
Y for Yttrium

C for Carbon
H for Hydrogen
I for Iodine
C for Carbon
K for Potassium
