THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Girl students aspiring for a career in science will have the opportunity to interact with some of the foremost women achievers in the field at a meeting organised by the Kerala State Council for Science Technology and Environment (KSCSTE) on February 17 in connection with International Women’s Day (IWD)-2012.

The Women’s Cell of KSCSTE aims to provide an opportunity for young girls to learn about cutting-edge research taking place in the scientific field, the immense scope of the profession as well as its challenges at the event, themed ‘Women achievers in science - connecting girls, inspiring futures.’

 Women scientists who have received the prestigious Young Scientist Award at various editions of the Kerala Science Congress are being invited to present their research work before an audience of science enthusiasts at the KSCSTE’s headquarters at Sasthra Bhavan on Friday.

 As many as 100 students and women scientists are expected to participate in the day-long programme, which intends to create awareness and encourage keen young minds to take up science as a profession.

 International Women’s Day is celebrated globally on March 8 every year to recognise the economic, political and social achievements of women’s past, present and future.
