Gender-inclusive education in Sciences - Toolkit for Museums

Hypatia Project tackles the issue of gender inequality when it comes to engaging with Sciences - especially in the field of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics education (STEM). Overall, young girls and women are less included in these subjects: no specific efforts are made to facilitate their involvement, to grab their attention, to trigger their interest. This happens in multiple environments such as schools, museums etc., and stereotypes remain very strong - not only regarding young girls and women but also regarding young boys men's role in Sciences.

The project team has designed very practical toolkits, providing concrete solutions (including hands-on activities, informal discussions and meetings with STEM professionals) to bridge the divide. Discover now the wide range of possibilities, with ready-to-use digital collection of modules / activities aimed at teenagers to be used by informal learning cultural organisations to promote gender inclusion.
