Women + Science = Extraordinary!? Do you think that something is wrong with this equation? Do you ask yourself, why most people can’t name a female scientist beyond Marie Curie? ... why female scientists are still met with a raised eyebrow? ... why men have to justify themself if they want to take parental leave? We want to talk about all those questions in public. Not over the heads of, but with the next generation. Join us and become part of I, Scientist 2017!

For the last week of our campaign we are happy to offer a new special reward: posters from the beautiful "Beyond Curie" project!
The "Beyond Curie" design projects aims to highlight badass women in science, technology, engineering + mathematics. Have a look at their work here: https://www.beyondcurie.com/
And don't miss the opportunity to get one of the 40-limited posters and support our project as well as theirs!

3/20/17 - For the last third of our crowdfunding...

For the last third of our crowdfunding campaign we decided to offer the lab tours and research presentations for a cheaper price. We want to give you the opportunity to meet some of us in person and to learn something exciting about science from up-to-date research projects. Since we can't chance the price of Maja's tour anymore (which is definitely worth the 300€!) we offer that everyone who books her tour, can get an additional reward - either a second lab tour or two extra donated tickets.

3/8/17 - On the occasion of the International Women's...

On the occasion of the International Women's Day we will start an action for 24 hours within our crowdfunding campaign:
For every ticket someone donates here today for someone else, we will give an additional free place for the conference on top of it.
Donate your ticket today and make it possible for two persons to attend the conference, find new role models and discuss about gender-based barriers!
Join us and be part of I, Scientist!
