Saturday, November 18, 2017, "Expanding your Horizons - Geneva" (EYH) will hold its fifth biennial event for young girls, to encourage them to study science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). The event will be held at the University of Geneva (Uni Mail).

"Expanding your Horizons" is a free event that caters for girls from the ages of 11 to 14 years old living in Geneva and the surrounding region. Workshops, held in French and in English, will be packed with activities to show the 450 girls taking part that science and technology are fun and interesting. Parents are also invited to participate in a panel discussion on ways to encourage and support their daughters’ interest in STEM at school. Thanks to the contribution of about 30 volunteers, CERN will be participating in EYH 2017 with four different workshops and a stand at the “Discovery Fair”.

Feel free to pass the messages to girls aged 11-14!
