In Città della Scienza “Doing Science? A Game for Girls”

On the occasion of International Women’s Day, Città della Senza remembers the fundamental contribution of women to scientific and technological research.

Another weekend not to be missed Science City Between workshops, children’s activities and planetarium shows.

women and science? A winning formula whose origins go back to ancient times. Researchers, doctors, scientists and professionals in the highest institutional positions: female figures who, thanks to study and work, but also courage and intelligence, have found the right key to confirm their ideas and become milestones in our society.

The gender gap and the consequent scarcity of women in senior positions in the scientific, technological and academic fields not only mean depriving research of the essential contribution of creativity and diversity of ideas, but also giving life to a science that is incompletely responsive to the needs of the population.

On the occasion of the upcoming International Women’s Day, which is celebrated on the eighth of March, Science City, Saturday 4 and Sunday 5 March, remember the essential female contribution to scientific and technological research through coding laboratories, Montessori activities for the little ones, a paper circle of the horoscopes and a science show themed “Picture 51”. And if you’re wondering what it is… you just have to come visit us!

There will also be performances in the planetarium, guided tours of the Interactive Museum of the Human Body Corporea, and scheduled exhibitions: Insetti & Co, 7 Steps in Sustainability, Space for the Future, Aquae. The future in the ocean and synchronicity in art and science: a unified perception of reality.
