Meet our young collaborator, Katariina! She’s 16 years old, and will soon be starting her 11th grade. Science, nature and equestrianism are her interests, but she is also adamant that, when she grows up, she would like to be a Disney princess. Yes, she really means it! “I mean, I’m already almost a grown-up, but when I g r o w u p I would like to be a Disney princess.”
Katariina has been working with the Tartu-based AHHAA Science Centre on the Hypatia Project, thinking about the role of girls in STEM (Science, Technology, Mathematics, and Engineering) and how best to communicate science in a way that makes it accessible to everybody!
