The project ‘Las chicas son de ciencias (CSIC4girls)’ aims to promote scientific and technological culture among elementary school students. Funded by the Fundación Española para la Ciencia y la Tecnología, and in collaboration with the Institute of Advanced Chemistry of Catalonia (IQAC-CSIC), the project is ongoing and offers 6-12 year-old girls the opportunity to get in touch with scientific culture and to explore and experiment with environmental science and technology.
Through this initiative, the CSIC wants to develop female talent and scientific and technological vocations, increasing their visibility and boosting their self-confidence in their abilities.
CSIC4girls offers online scientific workshops taught by IDAEA and IQAC researchers. They are interactive workshops where these children can actively participate doing experiments and interacting with other girls and the researchers.
