WOMEN IN STEM
The Champions of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics exhibit includes scientific and life
stories about women who, often despite the times, shaped the world, society and environment in which
they lived or live. The Women in STEM initiative aims to advance and maintain young women’s interest
in STEM fields. Throughout history, women have always made significant contributions in these fields.
However, gender inequality persists, especially at the highest levels in the scientific community and
industry. Here you will meet the pioneers of their fields, such as Hypatia, the most famous
mathematician of ancient Greece, or Ada Lovelace, the first programmer. You will have the opportunity
to discover scientists who shape the medicine of today, such as Samira Mubareka, who worked on
decoding the SARS-CoV-2 or shape the future, such as Fei-Fei Li, an expert in artificial intelligence.
