Practical information for the biennial event


The 6th EYH Biennial Science Event will be held on Saturday 16 November 2019

The EYH Science Event is an event combining fun and hands on experiments. It caters to girls aged 11 - 14 years old living in Geneva and the surrounding region. 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, all activities of the biennial event, as well as the mid-day meal, are entirely free.

Lots of inspiring workshops, a discovery fair and a career’s forum!

We hope to attract 450 girls to take part in a selection from 25 workshops. 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 are proposed this year.
