On the day dedicated to girls by the UN, young people excitedly participated in science activities held in the Library of Mexico. The activities aimed to promote scientific skills and imagination in girls and young people. The adopt a talent program conducted a series of workshops where participants carried out experiments and proposed solutions to challenges.
During the experiments, the girls were able to use their imagination and develop their scientific skills. They designed and created models that allowed objects to remain on the surface of water using aluminum foil structures based on their imagination, basic information, and verification. They also proposed ways to reverse oil contamination in water, encouraging reflection and designing different strategies to clean contaminated waters.
The day sparked curiosity among the participants as they touched materials, observed them closely, and used their imaginations while carrying out tasks. Afterward, they learned about the importance of cleaning contaminated water and shared their newfound knowledge with their parents.
The adopt a talent program encourages young people to observe, learn to predict, generate hypotheses, and interpret data. They also work with groups in different states to offer periodic workshops.
The day ended with presentations about the challenges faced by women in the field of science, highlighting not only successful female scientists but also obstacles that women face in the scientific community. The presentations emphasized the importance of encouraging young girls to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.
Overall, it was a day dedicated to promoting scientific skills and imagination among girls and young people while raising awareness about important issues facing women in science.
