If you share a common interest in promoting science, maths and technology in schools for young girls, there is an opportunity to be part of a dedicated team in the Geneva community who held a successful conference for girls aged 11-14 in Nov 2011 and are now preparing for the next conference planned for Nov 2013. The EYH committee is looking for volunteers to promote, plan and support the event in any way you can.
The concept of the programme is taken from a California organisation called Expanding Your Horizons
whose brainchild it was to use women scientists in the community as role models to encourage girls to take up these valuable subjects at schools. EYH Switzerland works closely with local organisations such as CERN, the Botanical Gardens and industries such as engineering and pharmaceuticals, all supported by the local education authorities and hosted at the University of Geneva.
If you would like to learn more and meet the committee members, join the information session on 17 March 2013 from 3-5pm in Founex.
