An interesting event for all parents with teenage daughters:

Expanding Your Horizons is an international program for girls (age 11-15) who come from public and private schools. At the Geneva EYH conference, girls will participate in an exciting and fun-filled day of hands-on science, technology, engineering and mathematics activities led by professional women scientists and engineers. Girls will perform actual science experiments in small groups (in French and English) and talk with women scientists and engineers. Discover how an iPod is built, launch a comet, look at brain MRIs, find the link between cooking and chemistry and more!

Exploring what types of exciting careers exist in math and science. Meet real “Googlers”–women engineers who work at Google, talk with a doctor from the World Health Organization, ask women physicists from CERN what they studied in school…and discover their passions.

Over 20 organizations will be represented. Dynamic women scientists from a variety of fields (like medicine, biotechnology, engineering, technology, environmental science, public health) will be there to talk with participants. An opportunity to meet other girls from around Switzerland and France with similar interests. And, at the end of the day a chance to win fabulous prizes–like a notebook computer and a private tour of CERN.

Parents welcome –  There’s a day-long program of interesting workshops for them as well.
