Gina Isar, PhD in physics, Scientific Researcher tier II at the Institute of Space Science (ISS) and one of the finalists of the sixth edition of the L’Oréal – UNESCO “For Women in Science” program was invited as speaker at the mini-science fair organised for the first time by the Ştiinţescu Fund on Wednesday, 17 June 2015, from 9:00 to 12:00. Hundreds of secondary school students came at Casa Universitarilor together with their teachers to learn about cosmic radiation, to understand better some simple phenomena with applicability in everyday life and to create the premises of a professional horizon in science.
The Ştiinţescu Fund, a project developed in partnership with BRD – Groupe Société Générale, the Romanian-American Foundation and the Community Foundation and supported by the Scholar Inspectorate of Bucharest, supports initiatives that encourage students to discover the fascinating world of sciences. The fund finances 5-8 grades teachers of mathematics, physics, biology, chemistry and computer science from schools in districts 2, 3, 4 and 6 of Bucharest, for them to develop student-centered projects aimed to encourage their passion towards sciences.
