Emakumeak baita ikertzaileak ere

This year, Elena has collaborated again with Ikerbasque in attempting to convince young women that they can be scientists if they are willing to. Amanda Sierra, Matxus Perugorria, Ainara Castellanos and Elena Castroviejo explained their own experiences as women researchers to high school girls from Bilbao, who had the chance to express her doubts about the future and about the life we leave as scientist women.

As in last year’s event, Amaia Esquisabel (representing the Basque Government) opened the floor with her own life experience and the high-schoolers participated in a competition to determine how much we know about women scientists. In the meantime, Marimar Muriel painted two pieces, which were then donated to the two high schools, so the girls could tell the boys about this activity at the headquarters of Ikerbasque.

You can find here the article that has appeared in Deia (Basque newspaper), on May 4th, 2017, which reports on the event and on the data regarding the so-called glass ceiling.
