Girlsday Artwork

Submitter: Roy Smits
Description: Following up on the recent daily image (14 May), today we present the wonderful artwork that the Girlsday-Girls have produced as part of Girlsday 2012.

One of the "cool" activities was live chatting (via Skype) with a professional female astronomer. All questions were allowed; from work to hobbies to even more personal details. Part of the assignment was to draw their findings onto an A3-paper. To accomplish this, the girls worked in pairs and produced some magnificent artwork as can be seen in the collage.

A winner was declared in each of the categories "Best Artwork" and "Most Informative". The winning artwork is shown as the large images.

Many thanks to all the Girlsday-Girls and the female astronomers who volunteered to answer all the girl's questions to make this event so very successful!
