Practical information for the biennial event

 

The 8th EYH Biennial Science Event will be held on 16 November 2024

Registration opens on 15 September 2024 (1 September for members)

The EYH Science Event is an event combining fun and hands on experiments. It caters to girls living in Geneva and the surrounding region, aged 11 - 14 years old or 8P and CO (or equivalent). There are activities in both French and English, delivered by local professional women in the fields of science, mathematics, engineering and technology. Thanks to the generous support of our sponsors, access to all activities of the biennial event, as well as the mid-day meal are completely free!

Lots of inspiring workshops, a discovery fair and a mentoring café!

We hope to attract 400 girls to take part in a selection from 25 workshops and 19 stands. The event will be packed with activities to show that science and technology can be fun and interesting for girls.

Have a look at the list of exciting workshops and discovery fair stands that were proposed in 2022.
