It is an initiative that aims to make visible the work of women working in Astronomy-Astrophysics, while offering girls inspiring models to promote their scientific and technological vocations. It consists of videoconferences with educational centres by IAC women astrophysicists and engineers, in which they explain their work, talk about their field of research and answer students' questions about the scientific and technological careers, the Universe or the methods we use to get to know it better.
The duration of the videoconferences is 50-60 minutes. The default language is Spanish, although, as the IAC is an internationalised centre, it can also be requested in English.
The activity is aimed at Spanish educational centres, from infants until High School and Professional Training.
The activity will start on 11 February 2019 in intensive format, with a maximum of 15 videoconferences from 8:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. (Canary Islands time).
The project will continue during the school year on the dates agreed between the lecturers and the centres.
If you are a teacher at a Spanish school and you are interested in participating in this initiative, register your school using this inscription form and request a videoconference.
Registration will be open until the maximum number of videoconferences we can do in a school year is covered. If it is not possible for us to hold the videoconference on the requested date, we will propose a new one.
