About the event
We are teaming up with Science Fuse to learn about the achievements of incredible scientists in our series of stories ‘Incredible Women in STEM’. Join us as we explore the innovation and action behind the fantastic contributions of women to the world of science and celebrate their lives and scientific discoveries.
Valentina Tereshkova- The First Woman to go to Space
Valentina Tereshkova is an engineer and former cosmonaut. She was the first and youngest woman to have flown in space with a solo mission. Despite working in a clothing factory, Valentina kept her passion alive by parachuting. After facing many challenges, she became the first woman to travel into space! She held the record for the longest flight in space for a long time and it took 19 years for another woman to go into space after her.
