Watchmaking workshop for girls

Post by koimaster » November 19th 2019, 4:17pm

Careers in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) are mostly dominated by men, with young girls often not even considering them as options. The organization Expanding Your Horizons Geneva set out to change all that by holding a full day of workshops exclusively for young girls between the ages of 11 and 14 to encourage them to explore different STEM careers.

Over 450 girls attended the free event that was held at Geneva University, in French and English, and featured 26 workshops on a whole range of fun topics, including electronic jewelry, drones for tomorrow’s mobility, artificial intelligence, cryptography, circuits of light, personalized medicine and biodiversity in your garden, to name just a few.

The Watch Pages’ editor Sophie Furley joined the fun by holding a watchmaking workshop together with Carole Kasapi-Forestier and Charlotte Henocq from Richemont to let these young engineers explore the world of horology.

“Your heart was warm and happy

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."
