From Pythagoreans until now : "Women in science"

eTwinning
 
From the ancient years until now, many women scientists and especially mathematicians contributed to the development of science . But only a very small portion of people knows about it. Every school year I usually ask my students to name a woman scientist. They know a very few of them. But nobody ever could name one woman mathematician.I think we must give them the opportunity to search and find information about this theme. Students have to learn the history of science. They have to learn that many women, unknown to the most, have offered a lot to the progress of the science.
