The Universitat Jaume I hosts the exhibition “Ellas tienen la formula”,

The Universitat Jaume I has presented today the exhibition “Ellas tienen la formula” [They have the formula], a chronological journey through 3,000 years of the history of chemistry, featuring 17 women and their scientific contributions, from the first woman chemist in history to active researchers in the 21st century.

The rector of the UJI, Eva Alcón, has opened the exhibition. It consists of 24 panels and has been installed in the Agora, coinciding with the celebration of the thirtieth anniversary of the creation of the public university of Castellón. Alcón has pointed out that “Ellas tienen la formula” is not only an exhibition, but “it is also a lesson in history, an exercise in popularising science, a tribute to chemistry and a deserved and necessary recognition of many pioneering women”.
