"Girls Leading in Science (GirLS)" competition encourages young people to undertake higher education in a scientific or technological field.  Science and technology is everyone's business, boys and girls alike… but this time, it’s the girls who lead the way!

Flemish and French-speaking high school students deal with a scientific or technical subject of their choice, get a video of their team, visit laboratories, take part in discussions on women's scientific careers in R&D. The winner is offered the fee of her first year at university !

The project was started by Solvay company. Belgian Women in Science asbl-vzw is invited to collaborate next year.
