Born on the occasion of the Artemis mission, the competition launched by the CTNA has achieved its objective: to stimulate young people’s interest in space issues, particularly encouraging girls towards scientific subjects and contributing towards gender equality. Aimed at primary and lower secondary school students, 784 classes responded for a total of 17,300 students . “ Scientific disciplines are the engine of innovation and the driver of the economy; this is why it is so important to bring young people and women towards STEM” – declared the president of the CTNA Cristina Leone – “ the Space Dream initiative is aimed at the little ones by putting together the many elements that can be of inspiration; researchers in scientific subjects who explained their profession to the children and the girls’ leadership in coordinating teams to overcome gender prejudices. ”  Despite the critical issues caused by Covid 19, there were around a thousand views of the video interviews with scientists and researchers created as a tool for scientific dissemination, around 50 thousand readings of the dedicated pages.
