In the UK, young women approaching their final school exams are not rushing to join the scientific professions.
 
This project is aimed at providing them with female role models in both science and the arts. The stories of eminent women scientists are told through the medium of arresting and powerful music-theatre. 
 
Supported by living scientists this project will grow over the next few years, commissioning work from British Women Composers, collaborating with British Women Scientists, and performing, lecturing and workshopping at schools across the UK and scientific and arts events.

"Minerva:
 
Roman goddess of wisdom, war and the arts and crafts, daughter of Jupiter and an inspiration to women in pursuit of knowledge.

Often portrayed fully dressed in armour, “she is the thinking, calculating and inventive power personified, (Smith, 1867) She is also said to have invented musical instruments, and bestowed the gifts of the arts to a few chosen individuals. Marrying the twin concepts of scientific intellect and musical creativity, Minerva stands as the perfect figurehead for what the Minerva Scientifica project sets out to do.
