The toolkit is produced in the context of the Hypatia project by five science centres and museums (NEMO Science Museum, Museo Nazionale della Scienza e della Tecnologia “Leonardo da Vinci”, Bloomfield Science Museum Jerusalem, Experimentarium, Universcience) in collaboration with gender experts, teachers, research industry institutions and teenagers. 

Hypatia’s toolkit is an accessible, practical and ready-to-use digital collection of innovative activities aimed at teenagers. The collection contains workshops, speed dating, card games, debate scenarios and plays drawn from good practices across Europe.

Each activity, called module, has a central focus on gender-inclusive ways of communicating STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics), empowering teenagers and exploring the range of skills that are needed for a great variety of STEM studies and careers open to young people. Every activity contains gender and facilitation guidelines and can be implemented by teachers, informal learning organisations, researchers and industry.

You can download each module individually or a collection according to the setting where the activity will be implemented: Schools / Science Centers & Museums / Industry & Research Institutions
