International day of women and girls in science (11th February)


BRIT Biology teachers Ana Cristina Arnal, Chelo Calavia and David Salas have shown bilingual and non-bilingual 1st ESO students an artistic exhibition by two famous painters and naturalists: MARIA SIBYLLA MERIEN (17th century) and MARTA CHIRINO (21st century). Then it’s been the students’ turn to imitate them and draw insects seen through a magnifying glass. In this way the students have reinforced their knowledge on insects and they have understood the importance of these women for Science.
