Hedy Lamarr – Women in STEM

On the 18th of January, we had a project to write an article about any Women in the STEM field. My article includes information about Hedy Lamarr and also her inventions that she had created.


Hedy Lamarr was born on the 9th november 1913 in Vienna, Austria, the daughter of a wealthy jewish banker. She drop out of school just because she want to pursue her dream, which is to become an actress. In her film career, she had become a Hollywood star in 1940s and she was essentially the equivalent of Angelina Jolie. Hedy Lamarr was once known as the most beautiful woman in the world.

There is no record of Hedy Lamarr talking about her invention to the reporters. Her invention is call “Frequency hopping” and she work on this inventintion with George Antheil. In her off hours, from work she work on this creation.There’s a lot of rumors about her invention. Some says “She is too beautiful, to come up with this brilliant idea.” What I learn from her is that you don’t have to have a high school degree to invent something. What you need is your brain and dot connection. The more you connect ideas from various people the more you can improve your invention. Hedy Lamarr created her device in world war II to assist secret communication, and it also served as an essential building block for wifi, bluetooth and GPS. That we now use these type of thing everyday and we don’t even realize who was the inspiration for these people to create Wifi, bluetooth and GPS. Hedy Lamarr has no science training but have a exceptional scientific mind. She always took things into her own hands and never let anyone control her. She talked to the navy about her invention with George Antheil and provided 7 millions dollars to the USA for the selling war bond. The Navy didn’t us her invention at that time but they it after world war II.

When she grew old, she finally received recognition but she can’t get out of her house. However, she was still able to send voice message to everyone by the news saying thanks you. Hedy Lamarr and George Antheil applied for the patent for her invention on 11th August 1941 under her marriage name “Hedy Kiesler Markey” with a co-founder George Antheil. Then she was honored by Electronic Frontier Foundation in 1997 for her invention. During her life she was quoted as saying “Any girl can be glamorous. All you have to do is stand still and look stupid.” While she was certainly glamorous, as proven by her invention, she was most certainly not stupid.
