Part of the SummerGame2017 Game

Back before people knew much about genetics, scientists and citizens alike had some zany theories about how a baby's sex was decided. All sorts of superstitions were thought to effect whether an embryo would become male or female: body heat, body mass, eating too many carrots, not eating enough carrots, the location of the moon, the shape of the moon, the general vibe of the moon, sleeping on your left side, your right side, your backside--there really wasn't much science to it! That is, until a Vermont-born geneticist caught the real truth in her Net! Search for her first name and find some other fearless females!
