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.

More details on the program can be found here.

María del Mar Sánchez interviewed at the SPIE 2017-Gender Equity in the Optics and Photonics Workplace


Gender ESSThe SPIE Gender Equity Task Force was formed to identify how the professional environment of the optics and photonics community can better enable equal opportunities, rewards, and recognition for its members, independent of gender.

This year, Maria del Mar was one of the 16 professionals interviewed for the 2017 edition. The survey is the largest of its kind in the optics and photonics community, receiving nearly 10,000 valid responses and representing 105 countries and a wide range of disciplines. The results of this study can be download at the following link.
