Semillas de Triunfo: Mentoras

"SI apoyamos una chica en STEM, ENTONCES ella puede cambiar el mundo"

 

El programa de mentoría a distancia de Semillas de Triunfo ofrece a las niñas la oportunidad de tener una mentora que se desempeña en las disciplinas STEM para que le acompañe durante su participación en Semillas de Triunfo: Edición IF/THEN.

From Girl Leaders to Women Leaders in Science

On February 11 the world celebrates International Day of Women and Girls in Science. This day, which recognizes the crucial role of women and girls in science and technology, was established in 2016 through a resolution of the United Nations General Assembly. Some of the most relevant points of this resolution, in my opinion, are the promotion of (1) full and equal participation for women and girls, both in their education, as well as their work environment and (2) full participation by women and girls in decision making in science.

Science will not thank you: volunteer anecdote

Reyna I. Martínez De Luna's picture

“Doing science” is to generate knowledge. The process of generating knowledge does not involve any feelings nor does it allow you to know if your findings have any value or not.

This is because science is a human and social process.  The people who give value to the new knowledge generated are the scientists themselves who are people just like you and me.

A dream within a dream

I've had all kinds of dreams when I sleep. Some are very long and strange but others are just funny. Those dreams while I sleep have always been a mystery to me, but are not part of my favorite moments. Daydreaming is what I really enjoy. I like to imagine how things would be if I do something to make them happen. They say, " It costs nothing to dream". I add that "to achieve your dreams is worth everything."
