As decided at our General Assembly, we have launched the new edition of "Girls Leading in Science (GirLS)". This contest 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 in 2018 by Solvay company. Belgian Women in Science asbl-vzw is now hosting it. Conditions and registering : https://girlsleadinginscience.be/
Attention: pre-selection of the new edition ends on Nov. 6, 2019 !
