15 wonderful fables to bring girls closer to STEM
with a preface by Elena Bonetti, Italian Minister for Equal Opportunities
A collection of edifying and motivational fables, written with the aim of inspiring girls to believe in their dreams and to feel free to approach STEM disciplines without fear or prejudice.
This is a compelling collection of fifteen romantic and colourful fables, inspired by the lives of the authors, who are members of the Milanese department of AIDIA (Italian Association of Women Engineers and Architects). The authors believe that sisterhood is supported also by shared experiences. Self-confidence and assurance with one’s own ability help to overcome obstacles and prejudices and to achieve desired goals.
