Description

11 February is the International Day of Women and Girls in Science. On this occasion and for the whole of the week, CERN, EPFL, UNIGE Scienscope and LAPP offer local schools the opportunity to welcome a female scientist/engineer to present her work to (mixed) classes.

They are invited to tell their story, reveal some mysteries of science and, if they wish, to conduct some small demonstrations. The goal is to change the pupils' perception of the scientific and engineering professions, providing them with female role models. And who knows, perhaps interest more pupils, particularly girls, in a scientific career.

Conditions

  • Maximum 30 pupils per visit
  • Teachers are expected to prepare their students for the visit of the researcher and to provide a beamer for the presentation
