The exhibition ‘AstrónomAs’ focuses on the contribution of women who have worked and continue to work in this scientific discipline. The digital version includes information on 270 female astronomers and their areas of research, along with other downloadable educational materials, interactive games, podcasts and videos. The exhibition is complemented by a smaller travelling version in poster format.

The new exhibition AstrónomAs shows through contents and interactive elements the active role of women and their contributions to this discipline.

Su versión digital, en la web, incluye información de 270 astrónomas que trabajan o han trabajado en una o en varias de las catorce disciplinas en las que se ha estructurado la muestra. La información se complementa con diversos materiales que incluyen una contextualización de la astronomía con otras ciencias, su relación con la cultura (cine, literatura, arte, etc.), cuadernillos pedagógicos descargables, juegos interactivos, podcast y vídeos.

One of the objectives of the exhibition is to encourage scientific and technological vocations in general, and among girls and adolescents in particular, as well as to disseminate the research carried out by women scientists in astronomy and astrophysics.

The original soundtrack of the exhibition is composed by the young musician and future astrophysicist Paula Espinosa, finalist in 2020 of the Antena 3 TV programme La Voz.
