Meet some of the Geoscientists who volunteer at Women in Mining UK

The geoscientists featured in this article are volunteers at WIM UK and represent a snapshot of the many geological careers available in mining. These women share their stories of why they became geoscientists, what they do day to day in their jobs, and how geoscientists are key in making sure mining companies can produce the necessary metals and minerals that the world needs.

Co pro mě znamená geologie

Co pro mě znamená geologie

O minerály a horniny jsem se zajímala už jako dítě. Myslím, že k tomuto zájmu mě podnítil můj otec, kterého jsem měla velice ráda a který si se mnou hodně povídal a formoval mou osobnost. Při hře na písku jsem si všimla, že kamínky (byly to křemeny) jsou bílé, modré, růžové a šedé. Chtěla jsem vědět, proč mají různou barvu. Nikdo kolem mě, ani tatínek, nevěděl. Možná tehdy mi řekl: „Když se budeš dobře učit, určitě se to dozvíš a pak mi to řekneš!“ Na zahradě tekl potok a po velké vodě zůstala obnažená jedna stěna koryta. Byla v ní tenká vrstvička bílého jílu. A zas tatínek mi řekl, abych ji i zkusila „vytěžit“, že si z ní můžu vymodelovat třeba mističku a on ji dá vypálit do kamen. Mistička samozřejmě při „vypalování“ praskla – dnes už vím, proč. V potoce jsme také s bratrancem zkoušeli rýžovat zlato. Žádné tam nebylo a není ani dnes. Ale rýžovali jsme!

ENGIE in Turkey

ENGIE in Turkey

We, geoscientists, study the most important topics of the world, such as mineral resources, energy, water, structures, and natural hazards. In Turkey, same with the rest of the world, the shortage of well-educated female geoscientists and gender imbalance is increasing day by day. To improve the gender balance and help to grow qualified female geoscientists, it is a pleasure for us to be part of the Engie Project.

The Research Language: a “place” for students to become Science popularizers and see how funny Science can be

Are you a teenage student from 12 to 19 years old? Do you think Science is cool and would like to become a scientist?
