Science and Technology conference and activities for girls

 

Saturday, November 16, 2019, "Expanding your Horizons - Geneva" (EYH) will hold its sixth biennial (every 2 years) event for young girls, to encourage girls to study science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). The event will be held at the University of Geneva (Uni Mail).

"Expanding your Horizons" is a free event that caters for girls from the ages of 11 to 14 years living in Geneva and the surrounding region. We hope to attract 450 girls to take part in a selection from 30 workshops. It will be packed with activities to show that science and technology can be  fun and interesting for girls.

Lots of inspiring experiences, workshops and a career’s forum

EYH is an event combining fun and hands on experiments. There are workshops in both French and English, delivered by local professional women in the field of science, mathematics, engineering and technology. Girls have the opportunity to participate in workshops on topics such as: ''Flying drones'', ''Eating insects (the new trendy source of protein)'' and ''Watching superconuctivity in action (with liquid nitrogen)".

Parents are also invited to participate in a workshop where we will discuss ways to encourage and support your daughters to maintain an interest in STEM at school and to later consider a career in these fields.

 

The next conference will be held on the 16th of November 2019

 Registration opens on the 1st of September 2019
