Diario de León has published an article about the award (Imagen Positiva de la Juventud de Castilla y León) given to Celia Santos (León, 1991), a PhD student in the Development and Growth Control Laboratory at IRB Barcelona for the project “Noies al Lab” (Girls to the lab), which aims to promote scientific vocation among girls.
A call to action: “Learn science and technology in a fun and participative way!” An objective: to foster the interest of girls aged 7 to 12 in science and technology through fun workshops. Activities allow girls to discover the world of research and innovation by learning about great female scientists who have made significant contributions to scientific knowledge. And three scientists: Lada Murcia and Celia Santos, PhD students with the Development and Growth Control Lab, and Teresa Juan, PhD student with the Structural Bioinformatics and Network Biology Lab. These are the three key ingredients of the outreach initiative “Noies al Lab” (“Girls take to the Lab”).
