International Day of Women and Girls in Science Competition
Why do we celebrate this day?
The number of men in the field of science has always been significantly higher than women. In 2015, both UNESCO and UN Women called for the need to promote women and girls in science.
Creating this diversity brings with it fresh perspectives, talent and creativity. As such, this day was established in order to recognise the role both women and girls play in science.
Examples of some women who are inspirational figures were given. Students had to research about them or any other women/Girls in Science and present their findings about their life, work and discoveries. Students were given a choice to create a poster or a power point presentation and came up with various ideas.
