“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 420 girls to take part in 25 workshops. It will be packed with activities to show that science and technology can be fun and interesting for girls.

Internet Society and ISOC-CH will be present with a booth to talk to young women about technology and science and opportunities in IT and Internet Policy.

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: “design and manufacture with 3D printers 3D”, “The slime factory”, “Simulation of the conduct of a locomotive”. 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 later to consider a career in these fields.

Registration opens on 1st September.
