EYH Geneva 2017

Honoured to have represented Insects as food, at Expanding Your Horizons in Geneva.

Expanding Your Horizons Geneva organisation is a non-pro­fit association dedicated to providing Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) experiences for young girls aged 11- 14 years old.The EYH Network began in 1974 as the Mathematics/Science Network, an informal group of women scientists and educators in the San Francisco Bay Area, USA.

The impact of EYH in Switzerland

So far about 700 young women from the Geneva area have attended our science conferences and are now starting to take up places at university. They have not yet been running long enough to follow how much of an impact we have made locally but they are motivated by the enthusiasm showed during and after the conference and by requests to do more!

Their goals at EYH Geneva

  • Promote Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) as possible career choices for girls
  • Offer the opportunity to talk with women role models in STEM
  • Have girls participate in hands-on activities related to STEM
  • Meet other young ladies interested in STEM
