| As every year, ASTRON has participated in the yearly Girlsday. Today we present the wonderful artwork that the Girlsday-Girls have produced at ASTRON during live chat-session with female astronomers.
The chat session involved 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. Working in pairs, they again produced some magnificent artwork showing the astronomer, her work and many aspects of her personal life. This exercise connects the image of a female astronomer to the personal world of the students.
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! All drawings have been sent to the corresponding astronomer as a reminder of this event.
