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.
