The Ingenuity (In)Visible by Núria Salán
“The Ingenuity (In)Visible”
In this talk we would like to give visibility to the unknown scientific and technological discoveries made by woman, which has been camouflaged in mainstream history.
While some male science celebrities has had really good visibility on google, woman who has made amazing contributions to our society and technology are not so much known. This is one of the main reasons of the “gender gap” of STEM woman.
The Ingenuity (in)Visible aims to make visible the ingenuity of those woman inventors of things that we use daily but that they are unknown for the majority of our society.
