Women in Science, a project that aims to awaken scientific vocations.
For several years, the Science Museum of the University of Navarra has been developing a website project that shows the presence of women in the history of science and highlights their contributions. The goal of this work is to bring science closer to girls and young women, to provide them with female references and to awaken scientific vocations.
Among the most outstanding actions is the exhibition "Women in Science", which aims to make visible, in a pleasant and accessible way, the lives of some of the women scientists whose contributions have been relevant for Science, such as Marie Curie, Lynn Margulis, María Mitchell or Margarita Salas, among many others.
Another of the initiatives developed in this framework is the series of videos "Women in Science", which narrates the biography of relevant women scientists in different branches of science, in the format subject comic and with a simple, agile, brief and rigorous narration.
This project, led by the Science Museum of the University of Navarra, has the collaboration of the group Women for Science and Technology of the academic institution and the financial aid of the Spanish Foundation for Science and Technology (FECYT)/Ministry of Science and Innovation.
