Scientific discoveries and technological advances to come out of the college include the first chemical synthesis of penicillin, the development of radar, the discovery of quarks and the invention of magnetic core memory, which aided the development of digital computers.

The third one is Stanford University. When Stanford University was founded in 1891, it was a co-educational institution of a time when most universities were all-male affairs.
