The United Nations, partners worldwide, women and girls «International Day of Women and Girls in Science». This program was first piloted in 2016 under the name Project Vault.
The aim of Girls in Science is to arm young women who have a vested interest in science with the skills and confidence to pursue higher education and/or a career in STEM fields.
The word «science» probably brings to many different pictures: a fat textbook, white lab coats and microscopes, an astronomer peering through a telescope, a naturalist in the rainforest, Einstein’s equations scribbled on a chalkboard, the lunch of the space shuttle….All of those images reflect some aspect of science, but none of them provides a full picture because science has so many facts: Science is exciting, useful, ongoing…..
On the 11th of February an intellectual tournament on the natural science direction took place in Almaty. There were very interesting and informative, interactive games. Meeting with Mr. Vlastemil Samek (UN Coordinator in Kazakhstan), Ms. Krista Pikkat (Director of the UNESCO Cluster Office in Almaty), Ms. Kristine Tovmasyan (Program Specialist in Natural Sciences, UNESCO Almaty) and Mr. Leonid Kim (National Coordinator of UNESCO Associated Schools)
This day was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly to promote full and equal access to and participation in science for women and girls. This Day is a reminder that women and girls play a critical role in science and technology communities and that their participation should be strengthened. The celebration is led by UNESCO and UN-Women, in collaboration with institutions and civil society partners that promote women and girls’ access to and participation in science.
People all over the world participate in the process of science. AND I CAN TOO!
