Do you know who is the mother of modern physics? And have you ever wondered who saw for the first time how DNA looks like? Who said: ‘The greatest danger to our future is apathy’?. Women have led incredible scientific discoveries that had a huge impact on the world we live in, but do you know about them?
The Society of Spanish Researchers in the UK (SRUK) invites you to Building Women in Science, an event that commemorates the International Day of Women and Girls in Science where you will learn about the lives of these amazing scientists that changed the world. You will also have the opportunity to create a diorama inspired on your favourite scientist that you will be able to take home! The event will be held on Saturday 16th February from 11am to 4pm at the Glasgow Science Centre (50 Pacific Quay, Glasgow, G51 1EA). Free event for the visitors of the Centre and open to everyone (everything in English!).
Join us and let’s celebrate together the crucial role of women in science!
More info: During the event participants will learn the history of 5 inspiring female scientists from the hands of researchers from the Universities of Glasgow, Strathclyde and Edinburgh that will use posters to illustrate the life of these scientists. The participants will then create a diorama with plasticine and other materials inspired by the scientist they liked best. Participants will be able to take the diorama home!
