TecnOPTO participates at the II Jornada La Ciencia tiene Nombre de Mujer


Mujer1Mujer2The II Jornada La Ciencia tiene Nombre de Mujer was held on February 26th at UMH to celebrate the International Day of Woman and Girl in Science. The purpose of this second edition is to attract female students to Engineering degrees. Recognized female Engineering professionals delivered outreach talks to an audience of about 200 high-school students. Prof. Carmen Vázquez, who talked about Photonics applications in engineering, and Dr. Sirona Valdueza, former student of TecnOPTO, were among the speakers.

After that, the attendees could experience hands-on engineering through several experimental stands, including “Velocity  speed detection using Doppler effect” and “Voice transmission by laser”, among others.

The members of TecnOPTO, María del Mar Sánchez and Julia Arias, helped organized this activity in collaboration with Unidad de Igualdad of UMH, and TecnOPTO PhD student  Aaron Cofré gave a stand on photonics.
