During the 2012 IGERT Field Seminar in Greenland, the all-female cohort 3 was introduced to this promotional video, put out by the European Commission as a part of a campaign to inspire more young women to get involved in science.
The controversial video has since been taken off the European Commission campaign website, but not before sparking some lively debate. The discussion in Greenland amongst cohort 3 about the video and the role of women in science inspired us to make our own version of Science: It’s a girl thing!.
And so we proudly present: Science in Greenland: It’s a Girl Thing
What do you think about the European Commission video and our take on women in science? Despite the controversy surrounding the video, the European Commission has a really cool website for their Science: It’s a girl thing! campaign. Check it out: http://science-girl-thing.eu/en.
