On this occasion, CERN, EPFL and UNIGE Scienscope offer local schools the possibility to welcome a female scientist/engineer to present her work to classes.</p> <p>They are invited to tell their story, reveal some mysteries of science and to conduct some small experiments if they wish. The goal is to change the perception of classes towards the scientific and engineering professions, providing them feminine role models. And who knows, perhaps to arouse career plans, especially among young girls.</p> <p>The event faces a growing interest among local schools, with more than 180 requests last year! We are thus looking for more and more female scientists volunteers who would give some of their time for this project.</p> <p>Practical information:</p> <ul><li>Possibility of choosing the more suitable times and places for your talk</li> <li>45 min. to 1 hour presentation</li> <li>Maximum 30 students per visit, from 7 to 15 years old</li> <li>Presentation in English or French (other languages possible on a case-by-case basis)</li> </ul><p>Registration and further info on <a href="http://cern.ch/wis-internal" rel="noopener noreferrer" target="_blank">http://cern.ch/wis-internal</a>.</p> <p>Thank you for your commitment!</p> </div> Mon, 10 Dec 2018 15:03:56 +0000 anschaef 9588 at https://home.cern Celebrate Christmas at Restaurant 1 https://home.cern/news/announcement/cern/celebrate-christmas-restaurant-1 <span>Celebrate Christmas at Restaurant 1</span> <span><span lang="" about="/user/151" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">anschaef</span></span> <span>Sun, 12/09/2018 - 12:17</span> <div class="field field--name-field-p-news-display-body field--type-text-long field--label-hidden field--item"><p>From 10 to 14 December, Natacha, who is in charge of Novae’s grocery range, will be selling various products at our Christmas market.</p> <p>On Thursday, 13 December, Novae will be offering a Christmas menu for 10.20 CHF:</p> <ul><li>Roast turkey breast flavoured with chestnuts and Christmas spices</li> <li>Cardoon gratin with cep mushroom sauce</li> <li>Roesti potato croquettes</li> <li>Complimentary Yule log</li> </ul><p>A free raffle will be held on the same day.

The authorities will use this opportunity to remind the public that the risk of road accidents increases as the days get shorter, particularly for pedestrians and those travelling by bicycle or scooter, because they may not be seen until it is too late.</p> <p>Indeed, road users wearing dark colours can be seen only at a distance of 25 metres. Visibility increases to 40 metres for light and fluorescent colours and to 140 metres for reflective clothing and accessories, giving other road users more time to react.</p> <p>The <em><a href="https://madevisible.swiss/fr/journee-de-la-lumiere/">MADE VISIBLE</a></em> campaign, launched by Touring Club Suisse (<a href="https://www.tcs.ch/fr/">TCS</a>) and the <a href="https://www.bfu.ch/fr">Swiss Council for Accident Prevention</a>, aims to promote enhanced visibility on the road, notably through information about reflective clothing and accessories on the market.</p> <p>So, for your safety, stock up on reflective gear!</p> </div> Fri, 09 Nov 2018 10:41:43 +0000 anschaef 6246 at https://home.cern
