Hypatia Inspires new Exhibit and Tech Lab


The Hypatia project is aimed at engaging teenagers, and especially girls, with science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) in a gender-inclusive way. The idea is for teens to realise how many opportunities can come from studying STEM subjects and that these opportunities are open to everyone, regardless of gender.

Hypatia’s Hub in Denmark, Experimentarium, has been quite active and is now able to offer a new experience to its visitors. They have inaugurated a new Hypatia-inspired, gender-inclusive tech lab. The designers referred to Hypatia gender criteria and consulted teenage girls in order to understand how they could create a space that would simply be fun for teens and not only for boys.

Still in Copenhaguen, the Tycho Brahe Planetarium has just unveiled their new exhibition called “Made in Space”, about our origins from the depths of space. As partners in the Hypatia project, the people behind the exhibition wanted to make it as inclusive as possible.

The other Hypatia hubs have been quite active as well. The Museo Della Scienza in Milan hosted a lively nighttime remembrance event for mathematician Maria Gaetana Agnesi, a collaborative inquiry about gender balance in STEM and a Science Ambassador event. Our partners from Serbia have organized multiple Hypatia events featuring Hypatia toolkit activities. Universcience, in Paris, have also drawn from the Hypatia toolkit for the International Women’s Day and organized a day for school classes to come and learn about STEM. And finally, our Estonian partners, AHHAA, have hosted a screening of the movie ‘Hidden Figure’ and will be organizing a chemistry camp from the 26th to the 28th of February.

The ExpectEverything campaigning machine is running in full swing, with its 73.000 followers on Facebook. For February, the Hypatia hub Noesis has been in charge of the Editorial Board and in March Experyment will take over.
