Exhibition “Female scientists who inspire me”

February 8, 2022 @ 08:00 February 18, 2022 @ 17:00

Women are still underrepresented in professions and careers related to science and technology. The reasons behind this are multiple and complex, but in the face of important challenges for humanity which could put its future at risk (energetic and environmental crisis, etc) our society cannot afford the luxury of ignoring the talent of half its population. With this exhibition we try to draw attention to the role that women can play in science, with 11 examples of celebrated female scientists (both at present and from our recent past) across several scientific areas: mathematics, physics, chemistry, astrophysics, … The world of science and technology is exciting, and there is room for both women and men in it.
