Annalisa - GALILEO Project System Engineer of S[&]T at ESA

I have been always passionate about STEM disciplines (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) and committed to transfer this passion to my daughters and other young girls.
It is important to stimulate girls to pursue a career in this direction both because there is still a lot of discrimination (a lot of people still thinks girls are not as good as boys in STEM) and because with diverse teams you can reach much better results!

We hope you got some ideas...
