The non-profit organisation, “Expanding Your Horizons - Geneva” (EYH), will host the seventh edition of its biennial science event on Saturday, 12 November 2022 at the University of Geneva (Uni Mail building). The event is open to girls aged 11-14 living in and around Geneva, and is designed to encourage them to take up studies, and pursue careers in, science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).
The programme for the day will include several inspiring workshops, a discovery fair and a career forum. The event will offer 25 activities in French and English, and will provide a fun and accessible environment for around 300 young girls to discover science and technology. All the activities will be free of charge, and a complimentary lunch will be provided.
This year, CERN will once again be taking part in the event by sending around ten volunteers to conduct three workshops; the young science enthusiasts will get to explore the power of magnets through a series of interactive challenges, observe the invisible and learn how a website works. Female computer technicians from CERN will also run a stand, presenting the work they do and offering participants the opportunity to take a virtual tour of the Laboratory’s Data Centre.
