Do you know a girl? Yes? Good.
Does she have plans for Saturday? No? Great.
Is she bored? Even better!
Imagine learning how to launch a rocket by a real astronaut, working together with an architect to design your dream home, programming a robot to walk down the school halls, using physics to play pool and ride a rollercoaster, understanding how the body works, playing with the chemistry in make-up, manufacturing new fashion designs… Fun isn’t it?
On Saturday 20 November at the International School of Brussels, 300 girls will spend an entire day esploring science and technology in fun and exciting ways. On that day, Greenlight for girls -an NGO with the mission to encourage young girls of all ages to consider a future in math, science, engineering and technology- will host its inaugural ‘Science Day’ event with a full complement of free, hands-on science and technology workshops, for girls aged 11 to 15, led by outstanding women in their fields, and some very exceptional men.
