“There are huge stereotypes in the world that are planted to very little kids very early on. But girls can still discover the secrets of the universe. I would like to encourage women to study science, technology, engineering and mathematics.


Because there are huge global problems that need everybody’s brains to be solved.”

Professor Minna Palmroth, head of the Space Physics Research Group at the University of Helsinki and chair of the board at the Technology Academy Finland. This is the short version of a longer interview.
