Women in STEM by EuLES, is a project developed by some members of the EuLES Network.

The EuLES Network (u-Learning Environments in Higher Education) is an interdisciplinary network created in 2010 at the University of Zaragoza (Spain) to foster research, interaction, cooperation and transfer of knowledge and technologies related to learning and open education.

The Women in STEM project arises with the aim of encouraging vocations to young people and especially to young girls, through the testimonies of women in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) . The idea arises from the celebration of the International Day of Women and Girls in Science on February 11.

The project consists of conducting video interviews of women working in these disciplines. The videos are hosted openly on the YouTube channel of the EuLES Network and also in a specific portal in blog format organized and classified by themes. Each blog post is also accompanied by a brief biographical description of the woman interviewed.

The interviews have been conducted with successful women in these fields, with women who are beginning in the academic or research fields, with students and even women politicians. All of them speak about their life experience as a scientific woman, about the difficulties, kindnesses and satisfactions along their professional career

At the present time we have made around 50 recordings and we continue working to reach a greater number of testimonies.

The project is hosted within the EuLES micro portal. This site aims to show a network space where resources are collected in micro format in three categories: micro-tutorials, micro-scientific dissemination and micro-interviews. The chosen format corresponds to learning pills that are created by the members of the network and that are channeled through this means. A continuous bet is made by the digital formats of distribution and, particularly, the video.

All the information and particularly the one related to the STEM by EuLES project is openly available at the web address
