Women and science: let’s jump the hurdles


In life there is nothing to fear, only to understand

(Margherita Hack, Astrophysicist)


The WOMEN AND SCIENCE meeting, promoted by the Museum of Saving, will offer high school students the unique opportunity to meet those who have chosen a career in the fields of science, technology and mathematics.

Three scholars and scientists in different areas will talk about their journey, the difficulties they faced and the passion that guided them. Objective: to convey confidence to the students and encourage them not to give up.

Particular attention will be paid to girls: in fact, although the number of those who manage to succeed in various professions is increasing, there are still gender prejudices and stereotypes that keep women away from STEM disciplines.
