Do you know who is known as the "Queen of carbon", or who was the first woman to receive a salary as a scientist? Do you know since when we celebrate the International Day of Women and Girls in Science, or when did the CSIC launch the "Women and Science Committee"?
Now you can test your knowledge by playing in our "Women in Science League"! The Gender Equality Committe at ICMAB prepared and organized this contest to celebrate the 11F2021 (International Day of Women and Girls in Science). Around 35 players joined the league, and answered for about one hour the questions of the contest, which was chaired by Amanda Muñoz and Anna May Masnou.
The contest now is open to the public, so you can test it for yourself, or play it with your school class, or with your friends and family. The platform used is Quizizz, a very intuitive and easy-to-use platform.
At ICMAB, we played the contest on Thursday, 11 February 2021, after the talk by Dolors Herbera (UAB) titled "Emmy Noether and the power of abstraction in Mathematics", which you can see in our Youtube channel.
The contest started around 1 pm and counted with the participation of around 35 people. The contest is divided in three different categories, and there is a winner for each category, that will receive a certificate, and two winners for the whole contest, that will receive a gift voucher for the bookstore "La Central", in Barcelona:
Congratulations to you all!
