The exhibition Forever Passionate honours 15 scientists who work in different fields such as agriculture, environment, health care and education. They share the common passion for scientific research and aspiration to serve the country and people. They overcame many obstacles, pain and losses.
They researched and worked painstakingly to create useful things for life. The female scientists have gained significant achievements in their research and the outcomes of their works have benefited the community and contributed to making a better society.
The exhibition includes three main topics: Source of Passion, Journey of Creativity and Ever-burning Dreams.
The exhibition displays objects, photos and documentary films exploring the professional achievements of the female scientists as well as their roles as mothers and wives.
The display also reveals difficulties facing female scientists, their strong determination to reach their goals and support they received from their families.
The exhibition brings scientists and their achievements close to the public, said Nguyen Hai Van, director of the museum.
“People may think science is something equivocal and not easy to understand, but true science originates from the life and serves the people,” she said.
“The female scientists we introduce at the exhibition represent many other women who work in different fields with the aim of creating good things for life, for example new plants which are more productive and rubbish recycling solutions.”
“Through the exhibition, we want to send out a message: science is life,” said Van.
The museum also introduced two female artists Tran Thanh Thuc and Ngo Dinh Bao Vi who have an ever-burning passion for arts and are always looking for new initiatives on their creative journey.
Their artworks of fabric collage and truc chi (an artistic medium in which the artist’s designs are printed onto a special form of paper) presented in this exhibition are unique pieces of art, based on the traditional cultural values that bear national identity.
The exhibitions will run until November 16 at the Vietnamese Women’s Museum, 36 Ly Thuong Kiet street, in celebration of Vietnamese Women’s Day (October 20).
