Charla con astrónomas:

As a way to celebrate the International Day of Women and Girls in Science (11F), the coordinator of the Spanish participation in the SKA, Lourdes Verdes-Montenegro had the chance to talk to students from all over the country through a Skype video conference as well as through a chat in which they asked questions to Lourdes; some of them, of course, were about the SKA. The latter activity, named “Charla con una astrónoma” (Chat with a woman astronomer) was organised by the Commission for Women and Astronomy of the Spanish Astronomical Society (SEA). 32 women astronomers participated in this activity on the 7th of February, from 8:00 am till 00:00. Students and professors from high schools and schools were very happy with the initiative and asked very interesting questions.
