#11F: "Our scientists in the school" for the International Day of Women and Girls in Science

The CSIC Delegation in Catalunya wants to contribute to the promotion of scientific vocations in young girls, and facilitate the contact between them and the scientists from the nearby research centers. For this reason, an educational action in the framework of the International Day of Women and Girls in Science (11 February) is organized, consisting on school visits by some CSIC researchers, who will explain their research projects and their life as a scientist to primary school students.

12 May 2020: Celebrating Women in Mathematics

The May12 initiative is an opportunity for the mathematical community to celebrate women in mathematics. The initiative is supported by several organisations for women in mathematics. The day is chosen because it is the birthdate of Maryam Mirzakhani, an Iranian mathematician at Stanford University, expert in geometry and dynamical systems and Fields Medal awardee. She died from cancer in 2017 with 40 years old. A the ICMAB we want to join this celebration that aims to inspires women and men to pursue their dreams in science and mathematics.

A few weeks ago we shared with you the beginning of the touring exhibition "Científiques Catalanes 2.0”, which featured more than 20 leading researchers from various STEAM disciplines and scientific outreach, including ICMAB researchers Anna Roigand M. Rosa Palacín. The contents of this exhibition can now be viewed (and downloaded!) online, on the Associació Catalana de Comunicació Científica's (ACCC) website.

The Science Week brings 185 students aged 12-16 years to discover the new materials of the ICMAB!

During the Science Week (Setmana de la Ciència) 2019, which was between the 8 and 17 of November 2019, the ICMAB received the visit of 4 schools, which amounted a total of 185 students. The students could attend the "Madame Châtelet and her Instagram followers", visit some of our labs and participate in the workshops about "Properties of the Minerals and Periodic Table Elements". 

Women in Science 150 years after Marie Curie was born

Marie Skłodowska Curie was born one 7 November 1867, 150 years ago. She is, probably, the most known woman in science. She is the only one that many people can identify and remember, the only one who won two Noble prizes: one in Physics (in 1903, for the discoveries on radioactivity) and one in Chemistry (in 1911, for the discovery of radium), and the first and only woman (for many years) who participated at the Solvay Conferences (the most famous one in1927, in the picture).
