On the occasion of the celebration of the International Day of Women and Girls in Science on 11 February, we would like to carry out an activity that increases the interest of students in learning about and investigating the work of women in science throughout history.
The main objective of this project is to increase students' knowledge of scientific research and discoveries made by women that have not been sufficiently recognised, as well as to encourage motivation and creativity. In addition, we will be able to work collaboratively, which will improve social relations, thinking skills and critical reasoning.
The activity will consist of doing an infographic about a female scientist, showing her discoveries, why these discoveries were important and a reasoning of why they were not recognised in their time. It is important that the students do not coincide with the women scientists, because it would be interesting to know as many as possible.
