Women in STEM Challenge

Women are responsible for many important contributions in STEM, but don’t always get the recognition they deserve. The Optica student chapters at the Institute of Optics of the Spanish National Research Council and University of Surrey came together to create this Women in STEM Challenge to help change that.

This game helps teach grade school children about amazing women in STEM and their discoveries and inventions. Highlighting women from all over the world, and across different scientific disciplines this game can educate and inspire.

You can also use the fillable form to create new playing cards of your own to highlight other women or build cards in different languages. If you make new cards please share them with us at diversity@optica.org to help us expand the game and share with others.
