Talk to Them: Women in Astronomy

Description

What is it?

It is an IAC initiative that aims to make visible the work of women in Astronomy-Astrophysics, while offering girls inspiring models to promote their scientific and technological vocations. It consists of videoconferences with educational centres by women astrophysicists and engineers who work at the IAC and at other institutions present in the Observatories of the Canary Islands, in which they explain their work, talk about their field of research and answer students' questions about the scientific and technological careers, the Universe or the methods we use to get to know it better.

The duration of the videoconferences is 50-60 minutes. The default language is Spanish, although, as the IAC and its Observatories are internationalised centres, it can also be requested in other languages (English, Italian, French). 

For whom?

The activity is aimed at Spanish educational centres, from Primary Education until High School and Vocational Training.  

When?

The activities will start on February and will continue until June, on the dates and times agreed between the applicant schools and the participating speakers. 

How to register?

If you are a teacher at a Spanish school and you are interested in participating in this initiative, register your school using this inscription form and request a videoconference.

If you want to request two videoconferences (maximum per school) for different levels or with different themes, please send two different requests to make it easier for us to manage them.

Registration will be open until the maximum number of videoconferences we can do in a school year is covered. If it is not possible for us to hold the videoconference on the requested date, we will propose a new one.
