Séance 1

Document : Photo : Barack Obama congratulates Google Science Fair winners, Naomi Shah, Shree Bose and Lauren Hodge, 2011 (projetée SANS le titre)
Consigne: EOC- Describe the picture (Wh_ questions) and try to guess what is the new project about
Eléments facilitateurs: Même de dos Barack Obama est facilement reconnaissable et bien connu des élèves, de plus il est dans le bureau oval que certains reconnaîtront et où l'on peut y voir le portrait de George Washington ce qui pourra aider certains élèves à situer la scène. Les trophés que portent les 3 jeunes filles indiquent clairement qu'elles viennent de se voir remettre un prix et leurs sourires attestent de leur joie et de leur fierté. Le fait que les vainqueurs soient trois filles pourra mener les élèves vers le thème de la réussite des filles (en science?)
Obstacles: Le thème des sciences n'est pas clairement compréhensible à travers cette photo, les trophés en "légos" pouvant induire certains vers une dimension ludique (qui n'est bien sûr pas à détacher des sciences).

Step 1: anticipation

Séance 1

Step 1: anticipation

Document : Photo : Barack Obama congratulates Google Science Fair winners, Naomi Shah, Shree Bose and Lauren Hodge, 2011 (projetée AVEC le titre)

Validation/refutation de certaines hypothèses émises: thème des filles/ femmes dans les sciences.

Consigne : Read the title. Now what do you think the project is going to be about?

Trace écrite, Production possible: In this picture, we can see former president Barack Obama from the back. He is in the Oval Office, with three young girls / women who are holding colorful champions’ cups made of Lego bricks. They must be the 2011 winners of Google’s science fair. Our project may be about women in science.

6- Mise en commun collective : Trace écrite possible:
This video presents an initiative from the “Boys and Girls Clubs of America” (BGCA) called “Tech Girls Rock.” Young middle school girls are encouraged to learn about Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). This club aims at creating the next generation of innovators and leaders, including women. One member of BGCA says that girls will be able to participate more in class. Another one states that they should listen to their hearts and do what they want. It is necessary because it shows girls that they can and should do science if they want to. It is necessary because it fights against gender stereotypes.

Compréhension écrite

The l'Oréal Foundation and UNESCO have worked together for more than 20 years to help empower more women to achieve scientific excellence and participate in resolving the great challenges facing humanity such as climate change or ressources scarity. They have awarded more than 100 women working in the Physical sciences, Formal sciences and Life sciences who are helping to change the world through their discoveries and are role models for the younger generations who want to break the glass ceiling. They support 250 young women researchers each year. The l'Oréal Foundation is launching a new version of its "For girls in science program" to encourage high school girls to choose scientific careers.

a) Début de la vidéo à 0'04:
Can you imagine what would have happened if Einstein had been born a woman?
Recueil des hypothèses des élèves.
Productions possibles:
His researches wouldn't have been known.
His theories wouldn't have been published.
He wouldn't have won a Nobel Prize.
A man would have taken the credit of his work.

Step 3: The Matilda effect- No more Matildas

b)Check your hypotheses:
00:08: We probably wouldn't know who Einstein is today.
00:10: Because the merits of those discoveries would have been taken by a fellow male researcher.

c) How is this phenomenon called, what does it refer to and what are the consequences?
00:13 This phenomenon, known as the Matilda Effect in honour of Matilda Joslyn Gage, who was the first activist to denounce it, highlights the injustice of systematically ignoring the findings of brilliant women scientists throughout history. Women who fell into oblivion and could not become role models for girls whom we have made believe that science is only for men.

d) Explain what the statistics given show.
-7.6 %: The female presence in educational materials only reaches 7.6%, a statistic that perpetuates stereotypes
-28.5%: only 28.5% of students at science degrees are women.

Step 3: The Matilda effect- No more Matildas


e) Give the name and the goals of the new movement launched.

They are launching #NoMoreMatildas, a movement to bring all these female scientists back where they belong, starting, why not, with textbooks and school curriculum. They want to highlight that talent has no gender, and to ignore the one that could emerge in young girls who don't choose science degrees because they don't have mirrors to see themselves is a cultural legacy that we should stop perpetuating.
They want join the movement by sharing, and helping them to inspire girls to know that if they want, they can.
