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 traveling 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. Its digital version, on the website, includes information on 270 women astronomers who work or have worked in one or more of the fourteen disciplines into which the exhibition is structured. The information is complemented with various materials that include a contextualisation of astronomy with other sciences, its relationship with culture (cinema, literature, art, etc.), downloadable educational booklets, interactive games, podcasts and videos. 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.
