VERNAL-VILICIC, Teresa P.; NAHUELHUAL, Evelyn M.  e  BROITMAN, Claudio L.. Engineering, Actors and Practices: Changes in Perception of Girls in the Woman and EnGineering Project in Chile. Inf. tecnol. [online]. 2019, vol.30, n.6, pp.315-324. ISSN 0718-0764.

This article presents the results and analysis of two questionnaires applied in the context of the project Woman and Engineering: sowing experience which was financed by the Explora Program of the National Commission of Scientific and Technological Research (CONICYT), and implemented by the Ingenuity Community Program of the Complex Engineering Systems Institute (ISCI). The objective of the study was knowing the changes in perception related to stereotypes that girls used to have during their school years about the figure of an engineer who works professionally in Chile, and the type of work that she performs. The data was obtained through an action research that allowed to evidence the changes in the perception of the participants toward a more social and integrative view regarding this discipline, its chores and its actors. There were no big changes related to gender stereotypes, but there was an encouraging view related to opportunities for women in science, which allows to motivate girls to study engineering careers.
