Destructive science fair

Today, women are underrepresented in scientific jobs, making up only 30% in research and 27% in engineering. But these scientific or digital careers are the fields of the future, and the majority of girls abandon them before they reach the age of sixteen. To highlight these experts, the city of Marseille decided to support
project “Science volume xx them » Started in Toulouse in 2018. Until March 25, 16 photographs of scientists from the National Center for Scientific Research in Provence are on display in the Place General de Gaulle (1st).

Vincent Moncurget was then commissioned to take twelve portraits of local scientists and researchers. The project then moved to Paris, Lyon, Grenoble and Clermont-Ferrand. At each stage, women are highlighted for their success in an environment where they have remained invisible for so long. With this new phase in Marseille, more than a hundred courses have been highlighted in an effort to encourage careers among schoolgirls and high school students keen on science.
